The Rails Center for Contemporary Culture from Tver, together with Axenix specialists , is launching an educational project for schoolchildren that will help them get acquainted with the activities of modern IT companies and try themselves as frontend developers . For this project, Axenix has developed a virtual game universe in which students, with the help of experts and curators, will create their own avatar and go through a series of game tasks. Representatives of Axenix reported this to CNews.
Schoolchildren will create a game called “One day in an IT company”. In the virtual office, by controlling the avatar, they will learn how to move around the building, get to know company employees, HR specialists and colleagues on project teams, learn different roles, and complete the first job task. They will have to not only create a virtual character, but also work out in detail its movement algorithms, test the development, pass checkpoints and review the code.
