Explore the emerging technologies of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (AR and VR). Designed for students in Grades 7 – 9, this 90-minute workshop will bring awareness to what VR and AR are and how the technology is being used within industry and our own lives. Students will engage in a VR-like experience, through the online browser-based software Xuver, which showcases how extended reality is transforming the architecture and construction industries.

Please Note: Students will be required to have access to a computer to participate in the workshop. Teachers are encouraged to utilize a space with access to a projector, so students are able to follow the workshop while working on their individual devices.
