This looks fun :) We need 1 or 2 people to make a team, contact me if you're interested :)

The first UPA Auckland event this year is going to be an Interactionary on March 6th.

Interactionary session

Imagine a cross between Theatre Sports and NZ Idol meets User Centred Design.

Want to play?

Form a team of 3-4 people before the night and RSVP your team name, team captain’s contact details and team members’ names to before February 28th.
Take the challenge of solving a design problem revealed on the night and design a solution in front of your peers in just ten minutes and scored by 3 guest judges.

You will be scored on the following criteria (although scoring isn’t the primary goal, having fun is):

* Teamwork: * Process: * Final Design: * User focus:

You wont know the design problem until the night. Depending on the number of teams, heats will determine 2 highest scroring finalist teams who then play off in the final design problem.

If you would like to be part of the interactionary but don’t have a team, email us and we’ll match you up.

* RSVP: Please RSVP to by 5pm Monday 5th March (for observers, by 28th of Feb for teams)
* Time: 6pm onwards for drinks and nibbles.
* Talks start at 6.30pm. Finishes at approximately 8pm
* Cost: $10 cash at the door. Please bring correct change.
* Location: Bank of New Zealand, 3rd floor, 125 Queen Street, Auckland
* Late entry: Call Mark McLay on 029 222 00 16 if you have difficulty getting in or arrive after 6.30pm
