To motivate the inspirational use of technologies and boost students’ creativity, the Library’s i-Space is introducing a new contest this academic year: the Metaverse Contest.
The contest provides a valuable opportunity for PolyU/CPCE students, whether individual or in teams, to showcase their innovation and creativity in utilising the Metaverse to build immersive virtual worlds that enhance and revolutionise how we interact, study and learn. Participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities to design and implement captivating and imaginative virtual environments.
With support from the Department of Computing (COMP) and the Library’s industry partner, a series of seminars and workshops will be provided for contest participants or interested students to learn more about the Metaverse. Please refer to this page for more details on the rules, regulations, contest schedule and related activities. Additional contest information and prizes for the winners will be announced at a later stage.
In the meantime, you are encouraged to register for our Contest Briefing Session to learn more about the Metaverse and the contest:
