Creating Virtual Worlds Workshops
We are planning to run pilot workshops for high school students in early 2019 at the University of Newcastle. In these workshops, students will learn about creating Virtual Reality scenes using the WebVR framework AFrame. One of the advantages of using A-Frame is that students will be able to create and test their VR creations on their own computers and phones, and these creations will also run on real Virtual Reality headsets. You can find out more about WebVR and A-Frame here.
We have recently received funding through the University of Newcastle's Centre for 21st Humanities Startup Pitch competition. This funding has been used to purchase Virtual Reality headsets, which students will be able to view their VR scenes through during the workshops.
The registration for these 2019 workshops hasn't opened yet but if you are interested in participating, please register for our mailing list.
