Get ready to play Mario Kart like you've never played it before - in augmented reality!

Spend the day with the gang from SPACEJUMP, turning the floor into custom-built racetracks before racing augmented reality karts through the circuits. Combining physical cars with a virtual race, experience all the fun of Mario Kart in a new and exciting way.

During this drop and leave program, participants will:

  • Work in teams to brainstorm and create custom racetracks using lots of different building materials;
  • Get creative with arts and crafts to decorate their racetracks;
  • Take turns racing augmented reality karts through custom-built tracks using a Nintendo Switch.

Experience a full day of fun these school holidays! Don't forget to bring a water bottle and your lunch.
