Creatives in Schools: Onerahi Taonga

AwhiWorld are working with Onerahi Primary School in 2021 to create an augmented reality experience around their school.

The children are designing the experience themselves including work on mapping the school grounds, choosing sites for AR points, researching and designing all content, designing markers for the sites (and marker housing), designing, recording and editing sounds and designing visuals.

A small group will be mentored to learn more about 3D animation, sound editing and AR app making (using Unity and Vuforia).

The programme will be launched at the very end of the year.

Maggie and Kim meet weekly with the teachers and engage in extra workshops for skill building. We’ll share the results as we go along.

Thanks to Ministry of Education and Creative NZ for selecting AwhiWorld to be part of their Creatives in Schools programme this year.
