Student Testimonials from
November 2022 Meta Spark Bootcamp

“I enjoyed being able to gain more knowledge on a relatively new technology, and seeing how AR is able to bring together a whole community. I also was able to know more about the Spark AR software and how to use it to create AR effects.
- Chan Tuc Loke, School of Science and Technology

“I enjoyed the fact that I made some new friends and learnt how to make different type of AR effects that I could share with my friends and family. It also allowed me to have a deeper understanding of the use of AR effects and it’s purpose.
- Raelyn Yap, Chung Cheng High School

“It was quite cool learning exactly how to make the AR effect on our own alongside the slides and instructor. I enjoyed the group activities and I have a newfound appreciation for the AR effects that currently exist on Instagram. I realise now how difficult it can be to create one from scratch.”
- Jhananya Mulpuri, Singapore Chinese Girls School (Secondary)
