November Creative Technologists Meetup – Best of Colab

This month we wrap up the year with a series of short presentations from our award winning Bachelor of Creative Technologies students.

Join us to hear insights into the process, technology and tools behind their amazing projects ranging from VR and wearables to art, games and IoT.

If you came to the BCT Showcase this is a chance to get behind the scenes with the creators. If you missed it, this is an opportunity to hear and see (many works will be re-displayed) some of the best work from the Bachelor of Creative Technologies programme at AUT.
