Designed for people who don't consider themselves “tech savvy”, this event helped shape the next generation of technology innovators by showing how immersive technology can be a powerful tool for doing good in the world.

Over the course of a weekend, teams designed, prototyped, and presented social impact XR projects under the guidance of both technical mentors and social issue experts. 

I founded the BuildFest in 2022, ran a much bigger event in 2023, and now it's being run by University of Texas faculty as a part of the school's annual programing.
