National Girls Learning Code Week Events

Envisioning a Better Future in Virtual Reality (VR)

Interactive online events on May 22nd, 2021 for girls, transgender and beyond binary kids who are 9-12 years old! We’re offering two different workshops so you can celebrate our eighth annual Girls Learning Code Day all day long.

Girls Learning Code Week 2021 Badge

Creating a Virtual Reality (VR) Prototype For Good

Join us and explore VR as a tool for positive change. We’ll research existing examples of VR for Good, then brainstorm and frame real-world problems that can be tackled using VR.

This low-tech workshop is completely hands-on! All you need is a device to tune in, follow along and ask questions. Some other prep materials you’ll need are:

  • Paper, markers/pencil crayons
  • Construction materials to build your prototype (such as: paper, sticky tack, scissors, pipe cleaners, legos, etc.)

Creating and Coding in CoSpaces

Build your own 3D creations, animate them with code (using block-based coding), and explore them in Virtual or Augmented Reality using CoSpaces! 

For this workshop, all you will need is your laptop or tablet – we’ll do the rest together!
