iOi at Home | Digital Handheld Cities

31st August 2021, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


You’re invited to… iOi at Home online workshop – Digital Handheld Cities

Engage your imagination by creating your own 3D virtual world in our Digital Handheld City activity! In 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. We will then learn how to code it to make it move and come to life! Assemble you own Merge Cube using the template to bring your virtual creation into the real world through Augmented Reality using a smart phone or tablet.

For this workshop you will need:

Who is this for?

This is for children aged 5 – 12 years old. You can take part from home, an afterschool club 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.

You can watch an introduction to this activity on our iOi at Home website here.

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.

What is Experimental Cities?

In this workshop we will be exploring the theme of Experimental Cities. 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.
