Building Unity. Building Cities. Building Virtual Reality.
Our Building Unity: Adventures in Virtual Reality camp will guide youth on a journey to building virtual societies that creatively solve problems related to housing sustainability in Vancouver. Using the program Unity (a 2D, 3D, VR development platform) youth will be empowered to create unity, inclusion, and harmony in their built worlds.
Led by industry experts, youth will have the chance to explore their curiosity, build their technical skills, and bring their ideas to life. This camp is perfect for youth interested in cities, architecture, community building as well as, art, creativity, and design.
