EdTech Augmented Reality Hackathon

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The EdTech AR Hackathon is an event in which small teams of developers, designers and AR enthusiasts will gather to challenge their skill against others as they develop an Augmented Reality (AR) experience just over 24 hours.
2 Days - 1 Theme - 24H to create
Attendees will be given a theme on the day and must create a unique AR application connected to their own interpretation of that topic. They will have just over a day to plan, create, test and present their Augmented Reality experience. Beyond this, the only limits are time and imagination.
Plenty of snacks, food and drinks will be provided during the duration of the hack. Many mentors will also support the teams and guide them in the creation process.
After 24-hour hack our judges will announce and prize the winning team.
Join us a few days prior on Thursday, January 19th for an evening of presentation, demos and networking about EdTech industry using Augmented Reality and be ready to dive in! Please register on: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/edtech-augmented-reality-conference-tickets-29751924808 using the code you will receive after purchasing your Hackathon ticket for a free entry.
