Please read and complete the following information to give consent for participation in the Empathy Week virtual events with Snap Inc. (Creators of Snapchat)

The purpose of these events is to give students a chance to understand the role of empathy as a design skill within technology and hear from experts in the Augmented Reality field. We believe that students should be shown how social media and technology can be used for empahty and to positively change the world. These sessions also give students a rare chance to meet employees who are working at Snapchat, one of the world's largest companies and directly ask them questions.

A 3 part workshop where students will be taught by world-expert Snapchat Lens creators and be upskilled in AR design with a core focus on empathy.

Students will be designing their own lens over the course of the workshops. One lens will be chosen as a winning design in the final session and will be promoted on SnapChat's platform for a day in front of 300 million users - epic! 

Workshop details
29th April - 27th May
(Only available to registered Empathy Week Schools)

What?

Selected students will have a unique opportunity to be trained in Lens Studio, Snap software that enables users to create Augmented Reality lens (filters) for Snapchat.

Opportunity?

In these workshops, students will be guided by experts and have a chance to make their own Lens that must incorporate and develop empathy in the user of that lens. The workshop mentors will guide students through the technical aspects of making a lens as well as helping students think of the user-experience. All whilst remembering the aim of creating a lens that can increase empathy in the user - pretty cool right?
