Unity 3D in the Classroom
This program is designed to support educators in bringing a new approach to teaching into their classroom. Unity is a design platform utilized in the industry to develop digital animation projects. These projects can be utilized for video games, and interactive applications. Learning physics and math concepts through Unity can transform students and create an excitement for learning.
Through the Unity platform educators will learn how to engage students to learn in a fun interactive experience, transforming the traditional classroom. Imagine learning how an object in a game must accelerate correctly and be affected by collisions, gravity and other forces. Unity’s built-in physics engines provide components that handle the physical simulation for you. With just a few parameter settings, you can create objects that behave passively in a realistic way. By controlling the physics from scripts, you can give an object the dynamics of a vehicle, a machine, or even a piece of fabric. From physics to math, digital animation projects use algebraic, geometric, and trigonometric relationships to define game object characteristics and properties.

Meet our Instructor
Luis first began learning how to code while studying Computer Science at Columbia University. He followed the Vision and Graphics track which allowed him to take classes such as Computer Graphics, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and 3D User Interfaces. Due to this coursework, Luis was able to conduct research projects focusing on Augmented and Virtual Reality. Post-graduation, Luis went to work at Blue Sky Studios to work Virtual Reality tools and experiences. He now works at Labrodex Studios as a Game Developer focusing on Gameplay systems and AI.
Throughout his time with We Connect the Dots, Luis shared his knowledge of Computer Science by assisting in teaching Introduction to Coding and Game Development. This path lead Luis to teaching Unity Game Design for Laurie Carey Consulting. Luis brings not only teaching experience with hundreds of students, but industry experience designing 3D games.
