PBL in Creating Metaverse

We provided online workshops to three high school students at Kogakuin University High School International Course.

The two-hour session was very well organized, and the students, who had already experienced Roblox, were introduced to Cluster and Spatial, as well as how to use the SDK in Unity.

In the second half, the participants became a team and executed a project to produce one world. The team members were convinced that if they could develop project management documents, the workshop would become more than just an event; it would grow into a workshop with educational benefits.
