Description: The CHLA Innovation Studio is transforming pediatric health care through mobile games, virtual reality, augmented reality and immersive digital experiences. We need developers, engineers, designers, students, clinicians + gaming, VR, and AR experts and enthusiasts to attend our 48-hour hackathon. There, you will form teams, refine ideas, build prototypes and pitch to a panel of experts. The CHLA Innovation Studio may provide additional support to select teams after the Hackathon as they refine their prototypes by providing mentorship and access to seed grant funding. Our goal is to help you develop immersive experiences and get them into the hands of our patients and providers. The “Gamifying Pediatrics” Hackathon will focus on using these immersive technologies to improve and build digital therapeutics, clinical simulation & education, and patient & family experience.
