Create Your Own Virtual Reality

The College of the Extended University at Cal Poly Pomona is thrilled to launch this brand new high-tech camp that allows students to discover, explore, design, and experience their own 3D creations in Virtual Reality (VR)! 

This two-part course includes a half-day of math class, consisting of lectures, interactive group activities and an array of math games designed to help students learn and reinforce math concepts they’ll need in order to succeed in school and future careers.

The second half of the class focuses on VR where students create their own immersive virtual story!  According to tech industry experts, VR is among the biggest technology trends of 2020. A person using virtual reality equipment is able to look around the artificial world, move around in it, and interact with virtual features or items.

Our VR students will:

  • Use an intuitive toolbox to create their own 3D characters, buildings, and scenes
  • Experiment with 3D modeling
  • Develop spatial skills
  • Bring their characters to life using a graphical interface
  • Experience their worlds using 360-degree virtual environments
  • Create various scenes that will be shared with fellow students

Students in this program will go through an interactive design process where they will literally breathe life into their environments through Blockly code. Every character will be programmed to move, fly, jump, or whatever the students can imagine!

We've all heard of virtual reality, but creating and coding it in person is an entirely different experience! After students have completed their realities, they will be able to use our smart phones (or their own if they have one) to download an app and try it with a take-home cardboard VR headset!
