Explore Indigenous Flora through Augmented Reality

May 4, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This event is part of the 2023 Celebrate Learning Week, taking place from May 2–9, 2023.

Join us in an exciting Augmented Reality (AR) experience on the UBC Okanagan campus.

In this land-based learning activity, AR software will serve as your guide to locate, identify, and learn the Syilx names of Indigenous flora, giving you a deeper understanding of the importance of these plants to the Syilx culture. You will have the opportunity to participate in teams, connect with nature, and learn more about Indigenous Okanagan species found on the UBC Okanagan campus.  We hope this unique experience will be both educational and enjoyable.
