Teen Designers, Innovators, Coders & Gamers: Present at Emoti-Con NYC in May

Project Team Registration is officially open for the 11th annual Emoti-Con NYC Youth Digital Media and Technology Challenge at the New York Public Library Bartos Forum on Saturday, May 11, 2019!

What is Emoti-Con?

Emoti-Con is NYC’s biggest showcase for young designers, makers, technologists, and tinkerers who believe in digital innovation as a tool for positive change in the world around them. Students network with peers and professionals, and share digital media and technology projects that reflect a range of interest areas and address pressing issues.

What types of projects can present at Emoti-Con?

  • Digital media & technology projects. Examples:
    • Physical computing, apps, games, web projects, digital art or performance, podcasts, robotics, VR/AR, social media, activism, music, video, etc. Not sure if your project fits? Email
  • Projects must be designed & presented by middle or high school NYC public school students
  • Projects can be in any stage of completion (you can present a great idea that you haven’t built yet, or a working technical prototype, or anything in between!)

The Road to Emoti-Con: Events & resources to help you get a project ready!

Check out the Planning Guide for Project Teams for details about presenting your work at the event.

This year, the Emoti-Con steering committee is offering 3 afterschool Design Jams to help students prepare a project for the event (and to help facilitators)! Participants will learn new design skills, meet the community and workshop project ideas. Learn more about the Road to Emoti-Con event series.
