Jumpstart Minis are bite-sized hands-on workshops for learning and discovering immersive technology such as augmented, virtual or mixed reality (XR), and 360 VR. There are also workshops on designing computer graphics for immersive tech.
Jumpstart Minis are open to all current NUS students and staff with a valid NUSNET account, who are new to immersive technology. :)

You get to discover immersive technology and learn some introductory skills to develop your own immersive tech experience. You can also get input from us as you create your own immersive tech output.


Jumpstart Minis is also one of the first programmes in NUS Libraries to roll out digital badges, in which a successful completion of a session earns you a digital badge that you can display online! More on the badges here.

They are conducted around Nov – Dec and Apr – May each year.

They are conducted in NUS Medicine+Science Library. To get there, you can alight at one of these bus stops (more details on internal shuttle bus services):

Block S17 bus stop: A2, D2, K, 95
