ICAT STUDIOne (Collegiate Square - 460 Turner Street)
Wyatt will discuss the progress of the project OPERAcraft - a virtual opera created by a group of high school boys. After having created an original story and libretto matched to music by Mozart, the students are in the process of creating an extensive set with Minecraft technology and practicing controlling their avatar characters. Wyatt will discuss the challenges and successes discovered during the process as well as ideas for the future implementation of projects like this in the communities outside of Blacksburg.
We welcome any interested students/faculty/community members to join this discussion, and enjoy coffee/pastries from the Next Door Bake Shop!
