We have officially launched our first (annual?) VR camp!! Here are the stated purposes of the camp:
- Spread the Gospel
To make it happen I hired three second-year Martin Luther College students. They came up with curriculum, themes, bought snacks, set up the equipment (the hardest part), bought the apps, and are running the camp, troubleshooting with the students, and monitoring what they see (okay... maybe that's been the hardest part... not the monitoring, but figuring out how to do it with multiple Quests). They've even been taking notes to make it better next year and all plan on coming back next year.
The Camp is running on the first four Sundays in October with the 5th being a play date. Five young people have signed up for the 5-7 p.m. sessions, with two more in a 1-3 p.m. session (we have only five headsets). The first week's focus was "Music," and the second was "Art" — VR Sculpting and (hopefully) 3D printing of their creations. Sunday the 15th is "Science" night. Sunday the 22nd is "Phy Ed."
