Reimagining the Derry Walls: Virtual Reality Summer Camp!

Take part in this free three day summer camp at the Nerve Centre and learn how to build your own 3D version of the Walls and interact with it using AR and VR technology.

You will learn the basics of virtual design, build your own environment and use coding to make it an interactive space.

You will get out to explore the Derry Walls in a new way, taking part in a fun interactive tour and taking your own 360• photos to upload and play with.
