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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 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!)
