Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) brings digital content to the real world. It uses technology to superimpose information (sounds, images, models and text) on the world we see. We want you to create an experience based on the theme of your time during COVID. This might be in relation to a new skill you have learned or how this time has been making you feel. The possibilities are endless.

Create your AR experience using the online tools and studio at https://login.appearition.com/educart/ and if you need help check out the how-to videos. Students can create their experience by using freely available 3D models, sounds and images found on the internet or create their own original work.

A target marker is a unique photo/logo/image that you have created for your experience. This is the visual cue to tell the software to start your experience on the screen.
This is an individual based competition. You are welcome to discuss entering with your teacher or school's IT team, but this is not necessary.
