RPN Meetup: Exploring Virtual Reality - A Hands-On Session
Exploring Virtual Reality - A Hands-On Session
In this upcoming meetup, we've invited a Virtual Reality (VR) expert from Sciosity to explore more about this rising technology trend. Experience first hand with a VR headset and the impact that VR can potentially unlock for our children's future! At the end of the workshop, you will be sufficiently proficient with 3D Modelling and will be capable of using the relevant software independently.
We'll be starting our session with Ryan Beckmand, our expert from Western Australia, who will be sharing on the opportunities in Virtual Reality. There will also be a Fireside Chat with him, for us to ask him questions and discuss topics in VR!
Finally, we'll end off the session with a VR Workshop where we will learn how to create and deploy a VR environment.
Come join us for 2 hours on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and meet other parents of young entrepreneurs as well!

WHAT IS RPN?
We're a group of changemakers interested in start-ups, tech, design and entrepreneurship. Each month, we get together to discuss ideas and activities to support youths. We weave entrepreneurship into our work to teach them values and skills.
We've started this initiative called the Reactor Parent Network (RPN) to empower parents with entrepreneurship skills because when the right elements are brought together in the right environment, a reaction occurs.
Through this Meetup, we hope to inspire discussions with parents, and accompany you on your journey as we nurture youths and support them in their personal and professional development, as they grow to be independent, resilient, and above all, contributing members to society.
Am I allowed to bring my children with me?
Yes! We encourage you to bring your child/children for this session. Learning is best done together!
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The nearest stop by train is Orchard MRT station.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
