Episode 2 of Launching Questions interviews Professor Ian Snyder at Metropolitan Community College.
Professor Snyder has experience as a game developer and worked on games like GT Racing and the Asphalt series. We visited his VR Lab where he let us play with some of the virtual reality projects he works on with his students. The chess game was a favorite for us. It was incredibly surreal, you had to be careful you didn’t knock down the pieces as you moved them!
If you’re interested in learning more about making video games, here are some great places to start. For 3D design and modeling, there’s Blender, Twine to build story adventure games, and Scratch for beginning coding. And the best part is all of these resources are free.
LIVE. EXPLORE. LEARN. R3IMAGINE LIFE is an emerging co-op community for homeschooling families to share adventures in self-directed learning and respectful parenting. If play is learning, then the world is our playground.
