Who Should Participate?
Atlanta high school and university students and their families are invited to attend this day-long, idea challenge. We’ll have hardware for you to test and play with - from VR headsets and arduino boards - to coding kits for younger participants. All-ages are welcome to take part.
What Will be Worked On?
Sports and entertainment are booming in Atlanta. TV networks, Hollywood studios and more created $9.5 billion in state economic impact in 2017, new stadiums are popping up all over town, and our professional sports teams have a fanatic fan base.
