Virtual Reality

Rising Grades 7 to 9

Navigate and create virtual reality (VR) environments.

In the first week, students use VR to visit landmarks across the globe, soar through space, and navigate environments from the ocean floor to the inside of a human cell.

In the second week, students use the Unity software development platform to program and play games in VR, and end by building their own 3D world to explore. Prior experience with computer programming is not required.

Fairfax Collegiate provides all the equipment for students to work in pairs, including Meta Quest 2 headsets.
