Modeling a New World: Virtual Reality

Workshop Outline:

This workshop, developed by Jason Madar from Langara College, has been designed to help introduce students to coding terms and functions, while allowing them the opportunity to develop a virtual reality environments. Students will have the opportunity to develop code to build a 3-D environment. Afterwards, they can export their new world, put on our magical glasses and take a peek into the world of Virtual Reality!

Note: This workshop is only available on Fridays until December 2017. Further availability for 2018 will be updated here.
