Leading Online Camps for Kids

Athena lab metaverse

Athena Lab

During the SophiaX Athena Labs sessions, children will spend time discovering how to learn, create, design and engage with the infinite number of possibilities offered by Virtual Reality. From playing chess together on a life size outdoor chess field, to discovering the planets in space, to exploring the Titanic Museum and experimenting with science, creating and manipulating 3D objects and going on virtual field trips, this SophiaX Athena Labs experience is not to be missed.

As an online school pioneering best practice in online education and the use of digital learning tools to provide immersive and engaging learning experiences for our students, we are delighted to share that our team is launching SophiaX Athena Labs. These ground breaking sessions will enable learners to develop personal skills and digital competencies in a social, cyber focused world.

Led by our brilliant coding and computers teacher and Maths enthusiast, Mr Victor, we are offering parents who have children between the ages of 6 and 14, the chance to join our Athena Lab Virtual Reality experience.

As we look towards a future that will be shaped by spatial computing and immersive VR learning experiences, SophiaX Athena Labs will provide students with an opportunity to engage with Metaverse learning in a safe environment that moves beyond VR for gaming only. We are very excited to be working alongside some of the leading VR Education partners including Engage and VictoryXR to support our immersive learning experiences. We are committed to continuing to innovate and enhance our learning with cutting-edge technologies and approaches to education, that offers immersive spatial learning experiences for students as we take online education to the next level.

It is possible for children to join us in 2D from Desktop, Ipad or smartphone if they do not have a virtual reality headset available.  

Students are required to have an Oculus VR Headset to participate in the session. As wider devices are supported by the Engage Platform, please email our technology team at alberto.iglesias@sophia.app if you have an alternative device so that we can check for compatibility.

Meet Victor!
I am currently studying Mathematics at Edinburgh University. I have 3 A*s in A-level, in Maths, Further Maths, and Physics. Once I have finished my degree, I would like to work towards completing my PHD, and then become a teacher.

I have been "that one kid who gets maths" for as long as I can remember, so what better way to use that power than sharing what I know with others? During the recent lockdown I have helped tutor GCSE students.

In my spare time I enjoy listening to music and reading; my favourite book is Music by the Numbers. This book combines both my passions and shows how music has influenced mathematics, physics, and astronomy from ancient Greece to the twentieth century.
