The Augmented Reality Sandbox is making its rounds

Our students are learning about topography through hands-on manipulation of sand in our augmented reality sandbox. This “ordinary” sandbox seems magical when the attached computer, projector and sensors are turned on. With elevation lines and vivid color schemes, the topography of the sands surface virtually comes to life. Students can build mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes. They can make it rain and watch the water flow and fill the areas of lower elevation.

The sandbox is shared by all our elementary schools so it is making the rounds. Muraski, Surrarrer and Whitney students have already had an opportunity to explore with this amazing technology, it will move on to all the other schools before the end of the school year.
