Our work

UEA Outreach AR app

University of East Anglia

Tech to teach

The Task

The UEA Outreach team works with students from backgrounds that are typically underrepresented at university, as well as their influencers, to promote the benefits of higher education and to ensure that students can make an informed choice about their educational future. As part of their work, the Outreach team travel to schools in the Norfolk region and lead sessions with students of all ages – from primary schools to mature students – focussing on educating about future choices whilst dispelling myths that could otherwise put some students off.

To make their activities more engaging, the Outreach team wanted a tech tool they could use that would get young people excited about university, while still conveying a lot of important information. Crucially, it had to bring the idea of uni to life when the team were out and about at schools – without access to the campus facilities at UEA. So we designed and built an AR app that not only allows students to explore a 3D model representative of a university campus, but dive into seven different topics about university life.
