Augmented Reality provides increased engagement, interaction, and a richer user experience. The demand for AR products shows exponential growth in application development for major industries including architecture, gaming, retail and hospitality, entertainment, science, health, and education. With the continuous stream of news about the metaverse, and innovations in AR coming from industry giants such as Meta, Microsoft, Apple, Google and Epic Games, Augmented Reality is a very topical subject, and could well be the next wave of computing and the future of how we interact with computing devices!

Whether you’re a student taking OCR’s Cambridge National in IT in 2022/2023 or simply interested in the exciting opportunities of Augmented Reality, this session is for you! This session is also open to parents and subject teachers too.

On this TeenTech Innovation Live virtual event, we will be joined by industry experts who will demonstrate projects they have worked on, showing the exciting opportunities for Augmented Reality across a wide range of industries. This session will also be highly interactive. You’ll be able to take part in quizzes and ask our guests questions, so do try and join us live if you can.

Please Note: This session is part of a four-part programme. Please register for all the sessions, if you can.

If the timings don’t work for your school, or if you can’t join the sessions live, don’t worry! All sessions will be available for playback until the end of the course and you can even send us questions beforehand for our experts to answer.

Augmented Reality Masterclasses Supported by OCR

Join us for a special programme of free workshops and activities, designed to support students (and their teachers) enrolled in their Cambridge National qualification, and give younger students a taste of the course content. We’ll be featuring industry experts from film, television and gaming, and spotlighting the skills needed to have a successful career working in the field of Augmented Reality.
