Playing VR on a boat


This August we were invited to bring virtual reality games to The Barge at Brighton Marina as part of a summer long youth project that is run by the Tarner Community Project and The Goodall Foundation

Tarner Community Project is a community focused charity based in Tarner Park dedicated to delivering services and activities to children and young people to help them reach their full potential. It is the only local organisation offering services across a wide age range of 4-19 years. The Goodall Foundation (formally known as The Robin and Sylvia Goodall Charitable Foundation) is a UK educational charity with an international reach.

We brought a selection of games suitable for children of all ages concentrating on experiences that they could enjoy together. As always, it was exciting to bring these experiences to a completely unique environment. It was a stormy day on the boat but that didn’t dampen what was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

What they said:

“The session was great fun and the young people really enjoyed it. I thought the games were very suitable for the age range of the participants. The young people really enjoyed the experience - it was a great final activity of a busy summer program and all involved had lots of fun.”

“The staff worked well with the young participants and explained everything clearly and patiently.”
