SURGE x Shiftkey VR Ocean Challlenge

Join SURGE and ShiftKey labs for an ocean themed virtual/augmented reality two-week challenge! Starting on Friday January 17, students will come to ShiftKey labs (4th floor, Goldberg Computer Science Building, 6050 University Ave, Halifax) to hear from a panel of speakers on how they use VR/AR in their day-to-day jobs. They will then be presented with a VR/AR oceans related challenge and given time to form teams. The teams will then present their project plan to the ShiftKey and SURGE managers before heading out for the day.

For the next two weeks, teams will work on their challenge projects with the help of a mentor and be required to check in with ShiftKey and SURGE once a week until February 6. On February 6, teams will come back to ShiftKey to present their final projects to a panel of judges. The best projects will win prizes for everyone on their team!

This is a great event to build experience on project development, team work, problem solving and networking!

Event is FREE and open to ALL Dalhousie students – No experience necessary.
