Testimonials

There are so many unclaimed jobs in the field of computer science and also in the long run it will be beneficial for me to have the ability to code. There aren’t enough girls out coding for companies which also motivates me to be part of the percent to break that norm.

This camp shows students that they can do something, that no matter where they’re from, they can make a 360ยบ video, or an interactive website, or a virtual reality game.

Connie
HS Student

I am creating a Computer Science and Business club at school to share the materials I’ve learned at VR camp. I am also collaborating with my older brother to create a VR game using Unreal Engine 4 and submitting it to the Oculus Store.

Selena
