curriculum sponsored by Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Apple and many other partners. During these exciting sessions, students will first learn some basics of computer science by creating video game components in a mini code race. Students will then expand upon their creation by taking one of the characters and creating an augmented reality AR/VR design that performs specified moves. Students who participate will leave with free access to the platform to continue learning and exploration at home on their own.
