What is the Spectra Fellowship
The Spectra Fellowship is a 6-week summer program where a group of selected students will develop a Spectra project. The group will receive guidance and tech support to design and test an urban idea within Spectra Cities. The outcome of their work will be added to the Source City, a shared virtual reality city.
The 6-week program will include courses on the relationship between urbanism and technology as well as instruction in the Unity game engine and associated workflows.
