Who was your community partner and can you describe the project objectives

Aquatic Biosphere Project. To create an Augmented Reality (AR) application, that can help users learn about different species in different biospheres in Alberta. These would include fishes, mammals, birds, plants, insects and more. The overall idea is to integrate AR experiences for public engagement and learning. This app would cater to a diverse population of users and provide them opportunities to interact with the application and learn new facts and information.

What was your biggest takeaway from your CSL placement

How innovative the development platform (unity) can be and how powerful it is to visualize real -life things through augmented reality. I also gained insights into how diverse the CSL platform is and how it can be applied into so many different use cases.

How can you apply any newly gained knowledge/skills to your future endeavours (courses/employment/volunteering)?

The learning on this platform is cross-disciplinary and that it can be applied across a multitude of different platforms such as game development, web and mobile applications and much more.
