What You'll Do:
The Virtual Maker Camp Exhibition is Make Camp’s student driven online exhibition! Imagine a video-game style world where students can put up photos, art, and models of their projects. It includes “spatial voice chat”, where multiple groups of attendees can chat with each other in the same room just by standing near each other. Teachers and students come together to showcase their projects.
In this Maker Camp training session, we will introduce you how to use Mozilla Hubs to showcase your campers creations. We will lay out the Virtual Maker Camp Exhibition framework and show you as Maker Camp leaders all you need to know to participate.
Using Mozilla Hubs, students create their own worlds and exhibition spaces for their in real life creations. Linked together in a network of portals, these virtual galleries can be navigated on our World Map.
What we build now will be the road to the future of work and education!

About your Facilitator:Early in 2020, as the pandemic continued, we took the opportunity to explore novel methods of exhibiting and collaborating. What we found was new methods and mediums to interact in familiar ways. Our students at school have exhibited virtually and shared their work with parents and relatives across the country.
