About This Course

Launch your career in 3D modeling—with a twist! You’ll don the Meta Quest 2 and step directly into an immersive virtual studio where you’ll sketch, build, and sculpt 3D characters, props, and vivid environments to bring together your vision. With Adobe Medium, an innovative VR sculpting software, this course will place you at the helm of creative direction.

After you’ve crafted your designs from scratch, you’ll turn them into tactile works of art using a powerful 3D printer. Build a fundamental 3D skill set, starting from concept to model, and then work through the entire printing process to print your characters into figures you can display on your desk. The best part? You'll take home your Meta Quest 2 and all of your models and designs so you can continue polishing your portfolio and prep it for college admissions and career applications.

Topics Covered

  • Create characters and props in a virtual reality environment
  • Take charge of the entire 3D printing process, from model design to final print
  • Learn sculpting and art fundamentals

The market for augmented and virtual reality is set to exceed $200 billion by next year, with developers relying heavily on Unity (the 3D engine that fuels everything from gaming to industrial design) to create the most immersive experiences. This program will prepare your teen for the world of opportunity that awaits game devs with a solid foundation in these visionary fields.

This course is an ideal launchpad for pre-collegiate students looking to learn the fundamentals of User Experience and User Interface design.
