AR Girls

Interested in Art? Want to make a difference in your community?

Join AR Girls virtual camp this summer and use your creativity and design skills to produce your own augmented reality (AR) experience centered around the theme “reducing waste”. During the weeklong AR Girls camp, you will learn to use a cool and simple AR app called Metaverse to overlay graphics, videos, audio— even your own art and photos—on the real world.

Your AR experience will focus on a waste topic that matters to you and is an issue in your community. This might be food waste, plastic waste or fashion waste. You will get to share and playtest your AR experience with other girls around Maine!

No previous experience is required!
