Your First Step into a Virtual Reality World

VR Makers

@ Princeton Headquarter

The 5 day program, designed for students 12 and up, is held next to the famous Princeton University in the beautiful town of Princeton, New Jersey. The week begins with an in-depth 1-on-1 coaching on each student’s passion profile. Utilizing special metrics and data, coaches help students to better understand which passions drive them. The last few days is focused on hands-on virtual reality game design. Students will use state-of-the-art equipment to create their own digital programs with the help of trained coaches, and present them to a panel of expert judges. The winning team will have the opportunity to teach VR game design to their peers in Stenton Park, Philadelphia, an underprivileged neighborhood of Philadelphia.
