Due to COVID-19, there has been a significant rise in remote education along with a rise with its challenges; it's hard for some children to be stimulated at home, especially being away from their classmates; this may affect their education, cause them to learn less, or have bad grades, which can add stress to parents. ARCademy tries to remove stress for both child and parent by offering interactive AR Companions to help your child be stimulated throughout the learning process, by motivating children through a point and reward system, and by customizing plans to your child's needs.
What it does
ARCademy offers a learning system based on what parents want to improve for their children. It keeps your child motivated to learn through a point system and AR companions and offers parents transparency on what the child has progressed through and what they still need to work on. It's a win-win scenario for everyone.
Users will pay for the application; it's a subscription based plan. As parents are always looking for new ways to engage their child into learning, this app would be a definite buy from them. Our target audience is young with ages ranging from 5 to 12 years of age.
How we built it
The AR pets are built by echoAR and the app is made in Flutter. We use MongoDB for the backend to store user information.

We had some trouble with the AR when it wasn't rendering on mobile We lost a team-member Adobe XD could not properly compile the UI into a Flutter mobile application
Accomplishments that we're proud of

What's next for ARCademy
We realize the challenge of everyone not having good internet, so making this application to be used for offline purposes is what we will do next.
