SCHEDULE (the schedule may be adjusted):

DAY ONE (JUNE 21, 2021) – INTRODUCTION TO AUGMENTED REALITY
Location: Levine Museum of the New South & Uptown
Introduce participants to augmented reality by exploring current AR apps and games. The purpose of the session is to get youth excited about the possibilities around AR and is focused on having fun. Guest speakers who use AR/VR/MR in their careers will join.

DAY TWO (JUNE 22, 2021) – URBAN ARBORETUM TRAIL EXPLORATION
Location: Urban Arboretum Locations & West End Fresh Seafood
Visit locations for Urban Arboretum Phase 1 projects in person. Sites include: Johnson & Wales Way Canopy
Corner, Elmwood Cemetery, Greenville Rec Center, Andrill Terrace Road and Oaklawn Cemetery Connector.

DAY THREE (JUNE 23, 2021) – CONNECTING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Location: Discovery Place Museum and South End
Interactive teaching with an existing AR tool. Students visit the current Artifical Intelligence exhibit at Discovery Place to learn about the connection between AR and AI. AI features ways that our brains and computers interact with the world. How does this impact the design and use of Augmented Reality? Demonstrate
these connections through the use of existing AR technology to their surrounding area.

DAY FOUR (JUNE 24, 2021) – THE NEXT GREAT AR PROGRAM
Location: Camp North End Van Gogh Exhibit and The Nest
Brainstorm how to further use Augmented Reality in the Urban Arboretum Trail to engage the broader public. Pull from experiences and learnings from Day 1-3 to create an idea for an AR tool that would encourage individuals of all ages to explore the Urban Arboretum Trail. Three preset themes will be assigned for exploration based on the first three days. (i.e. Environment, History, Architecture)

SESSION FIVE (JUNE 25, 2021) – BEHIND THE SCENES OF AR
Location: Uptown
Understand what developers need in order to create different types of augmented reality apps. Relate this to the Urban Arboretum Trail (UAT) app development by discussing different types of experiences or stories to tell with an UAT app. Identify possible data collection and choose which ones will be focused on. By the end of the session, the group will have identified the type of content for which the future app will be built.
