You’re invited to… iOi at Home Afterschool Club: Handheld Digital Cities Part One

Every week you can join us afterschool to take part in a creative workshop from the comfort of your own home! In these workshops we will be exploring the theme of Experimental Cities and building on our skills! Experimental Cities invites you to test, tinker, experiment and explore your city! We’ll take a closer look at nature and allow it to inspire us for how our cities can be designed and structured.

What are the sessions?

  • 6th September – Make Your Own Microscopes
  • 13th September – Sculpting Paper Cities
  • 20th September – Handheld Digital Cities Part One
  • 27th September – Handheld Digital Cities Part Two

20th September – Handheld Digital Cities Part One

Engage your imagination by creating your own 3D virtual world in our Digital Handheld City activity! In Part 1 of this activity you will go on adventures through exploring scenes in Virtual Reality to inspire your ideas for how you could build your own 3D city! Thinking together about the different ways humans can work together with nature in the way we build the spaces we will live, learn and play in, you will begin building your own Digital Handheld City in the online application CoSpaces.

For this workshop you will need:

  • Laptop/tablet
  • Internet
  • Cardboard VR Headset (optional)
  • Smart phone/tablet with the CoSpaces app

Who is this for?

This is for children aged 5 – 12 years old. You can take part from home, community group or or where else you might be! This workshop is also suitable for children with SEND – please just tell us what your child’s needs are before the session.

Please note: This event is ONLY for children and their parents/carers. Part of our role is to keep the children we work with safe. We require anyone joining our online sessions to put their camera and microphone on at the beginning so that we can ensure every group we work with are kept safe. If you are unable to allow us to communicate with you on camera and microphone we regret that we will not be able to let you continue with the session.

How much does it cost?

This is a free workshop!
