Event Details

Using VR in the Physics and Biology classroom 

In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn how to create and code a 3D virtual world using the online software CoSpaces, in the context of the Physics and Biology classes. A computer simulation will bring their 3D vir-tual world to life! First, participants will experiment with objects and forces, friction and collision to discover physics concepts. Then they will cre-ate an ecosystem and code how the different animals and element interact with each other. Chromebooks or laptops are required for this workshop.
