Virtual Reality with CoSpaces: Scripting in VR (Age 12-14)

Ax170

CAMP OVERVIEW

Language: English

This course introduces students to one of the newest technologies - Virtual Reality (VR). VR is a computer technology that uses virtual reality headsets, sometimes in combination with physical spaces or multi-projected environments, to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user’s physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment.

Throughout the course, students learn how to build their own 3D assets, compile them into a world and experience it in VR using the tool CoSpaces. They will learn the concepts needed to create a coherent and immersive 3D space and apply their programming knowledge to render their world functional and interactive using JavaScript programming. Important VR features including player navigation, player control, object movements and collisions will be covered in this course.

This class let students experience creating a world that fully immerse the user and visually see what coding can do beyond the languages’ original purposes, and they explore the latest technology in a fun and immersive way.

This course is designed for students who have prior knowledge in programming using blocks-based programming (optional: some experience with javascript).

 

*** Students will be granted free access to all features of CoSpaces during term/camp time. ***

CAMP HIGHLIGHTS

8:1 Ratio Guarantee

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.

Follow on Curriculum for Immersed Learning

What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
