Virtual Reality with A-Frame | March Break Workshop

March 14 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Workshops, industry events and hackathons for 13-17 year old teens but designed to be a space for women, trans and beyond-binary teens.

Virtual reality (VR) provides immersive storytelling and gaming opportunities, and is a new medium for creativity and self-expression. VR has become increasingly accessible through tools like WebVR, where users can develop, experience, and share VR projects in their browser.
A-Frame is a free, open source framework for developing WebVR, based in HTML. Because it is cross-platform, we can experience A-Frame projects using anything from an Oculus Rift, to the browser on our desktop computer.

Who is this for?
Our Teens Learning Code workshops and events offer female-identified, trans, and non-binary youth ages 13-17 opportunities to take action on ideas that will shape our future while leveraging the power of technology. Our learning experiences are much more than learning how to code. Our experiences empower teens to learn problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, and much more.
