Emoti-Con 2020

Emoti-Con is NYC's biggest annual showcase for young designers, engineers, artists, gamers, coders, and multimedia storytellers who believe in digital innovation as a tool for positive change in the world around them. Emoti-Con is a culminating celebration of the creative work produced all year within the in- and after-school programs of the Hive NYC learning network, and at public schools participating in CS4ALL NYC and other DOE programs.
