In this series, participants are going to learn about the concept of Virtual Reality and 3D design by developing a 3D environment with multiple scenes using the Co-spaces software. They will design the 3D environment, add a 360-degree scene and a video break. The theme used will be inspired by the long standing Islamic heritage of the horse-riding sport.
Participants will be introduced to the basics of the Game design and development and use Co-spaces platform to develop a virtual experience of a Horses racing field, adding the audience, horses, candy machine, and more objects.

•Add large TV to stream the race:
•Go to Upload tap > 3D models > Upload > upload 3D model of TV.
•Add a protected bubble in the middle of the field (the ring), for families and elderly:
•Go to Library > Building category > drag and drop the transparent half-sphere.
