Course Overview

This course is designed for primary aged students who are looking to learn about one of the most rapidly developing and exciting areas of technology – Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR & VR).

Virtual Reality (VR) endeavours to simulate real-life situations through the use of three-dimensional computer-generated environments. Augmented Reality (AR) on the other hand is the integration of digital overlays to enhance the physical world around us.

During this course, students will learn about how to use the newest AR & VR creation tools and use them to create and code their own augmented and virtual experiences.

You can read our AR/VR Blog Post to see how this technology will affect your future. 

This is an online learning course taught live by an expert tutor who is fully DBS-checked. You will join a small group of other young learners, working together and making lots of progress in fun and interactive sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.

This course is also available in part-time formats.
