Virtual Reality maker workshop

VR maker

With virtual reality, you enter a completely different world. When you put on your VR glasses, you experience the world in an intensive way. Because the virtual environment moves with us, it seems lifelike. Virtual reality is different every time. One moment you swim through an underwater world and the next you find yourself among dinosaurs.

During the 'Virtual reality maker' workshop, you will learn to build virtual worlds in 2D and 3D. Behind the computer, Chromebook or laptop, you and your group design a fantasy world. You choose which subjects and backgrounds should have a place in it. Think about placing buildings, people, animals, mountains, trees, etc. Then you put on VR glasses and can start experiencing the world you designed for yourself. What do the chosen subjects in the virtual world really look like? During this special workshop, children learn a lot about the practical workings of virtual reality.
