Virtual Reality: Design & Code – After School

Grades 3-5
5/5

Design and code your own reality!

Have you ever wanted to learn more about virtual reality (VR)? Do you want to code your own unique games and play them in a VR headset? If so, this class is for you!

Description

In this futuristic class, you’ll learn the mechanics of how virtual reality (VR) works and get to develop your very own VR games! We’ll learn to code using a block-based coding language called CoBlocks, and every student will get pro access to CoSpaces, an online coding software. From digital zoos to obstacle courses, there is no limit to what you can make! You’ll even be able to enter your games and 3D spaces using one of our VR headsets!

This class is for our techies and gamers! Nerds who love coding and/or video games will have a blast in this class. No VR experience is necessary for students in this class – whether you’re a seasoned veteran with a VR headset or a newcomer to the world of virtual reality, this class will be just as thrilling! Plus, if you’ve ever wanted to try a VR headset on, this is your chance.

Over the 5 days of this class, your nerd will design and create awesome interactive 3D landscapes and environments! We will start with putting together 3D spaces through a fun project – building your very own zoo (Fantasy animals welcome, of course)!

Next, nerds will code moving obstacles like ramps, doors, and moving platforms, and program different characters to speak and performs actions. Then, we will combine all of these skills to make engaging games like obstacle courses and mazes that are fully playable in VR headsets!

Nerds will be able to share their 3D spaces and code with one another and show off their creations. Your Nerd will also have access to their Cospaces account for 1 month after the end of class, and they will be able to access their 3D spaces online forever!

Your nerd will learn the mechanics of how virtual reality works and design games for VR devices! Nerds will build virtual worlds using CoSpaces, an online VR builder. Then, they will learn to code using a block-based coding language called CoBlocks, which is built into CoSpaces. (For any nerds who would prefer to type out code, CoBlocks has an option for that!)

Nerds will also learn basic coding concepts like loops, conditional statements, functions, and variables. We’ll apply these coding concepts when we weave them into our games and make them even more interactive! Plus, you’ll get to learn to use a VR headset and design games for VR devices!
