About AR Stories Hack Day

AR Stories Hack Day invites youth from across Boston to participate in a hack-a-thon to commemorate Boston’s local history in augmented reality games by Niantic (the maker’s of Pokémon GO). This event will include guided tours of historic locations in Dudley Square, fun group writing activities to create meaningful descriptions of historical locations, and will end with the submission of updated descriptions highlighting the rich and vibrant history of Roxbury.

AR Stories Hack Day will take place during the BPS Open House on Saturday, October 28th from 10am – 1pm. This event is free and lunch will be provided. Register here.

This project of the Engagement Lab is funded by Niantic, Inc. (the creators of Pokémon GO), and supported by involvement of the City of Boston through the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, Boston Public Schools, and the Boston Public Library.
