Unity Technologies, creator of the world’s most widely used real-time 3D development platform, announced that Create with Code and Unity Teach are now generally available for the classroom. With these two new initiatives, teachers will be able to provide students with the design and development skills necessary to create as the world embraces 3D development technology. Create with Code is the first comprehensive course for educators to teach computer science using Unity, while Unity Teach is a platform and ecosystem for educators who want to teach Unity. Today’s announcements mark the next step in Unity’s commitment to preparing students for a real-time 3D future.
“When it comes to introducing students to current science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) skills, today’s teachers face an unprecedented challenge,” said Jessica Lindl, VP and Global Head of Education, Unity Technologies. “Technology is in a constant state of evolution and even today’s best artists and engineers struggle to ensure their professional knowledge remains current. Create with Code and Unity Teach directly solve for this problem by providing our educator community with the technical resources and curriculum needed to teach students development and design using Unity.”
The career potential for creators who can develop experiences in real-time 3D spans across industries like architecture, augmented reality, construction, engineering, entertainment, gaming, virtual reality, and more. However, the opportunity for students to learn these skills is scarce, due in large part to lack of teaching resources. Create with Code and Unity Teach are the first comprehensive resources available to empower educators to easily incorporate computer programming and Unity development into their teaching.
