We already have some fantastic student projects signed up to compete at Emoti-Con!, ranging from 3-D printing projects to assistive technology to games designed for mobile devices, and more! In addition to the project competition, we have a panel of amazing speakers lined up for the day:
- Mike Edwards is a fabulous developer and designer for Huffington Post.
- Ayah Bdeir is a Ted Fellow and founder of littlebits.cc.
- Jeffrey Yohalem is the lead writer for the Assassin’s Creed video game series.
On May 23, we will also be holding a webinar to help participating institutions learn how to issue Emoti-Con! badges through the new badging app developed to tie into Mozilla’s Open Badge Infrastructure, and to answer any questions you may have about the Emoti-Con! Challenge. Register here for the webinar.
We can’t wait to see you at Emoti-Con! on June 2!
