Project Description

$2,323 to fund an Augmented Reality Sandbox for Larry Larson Middle School.

Grant funds will be used to enhance vigorous learning opportunities in Grandview Heights science and social studies classrooms with an augmented reality “sandbox.” The sandbox is a combination of open source coding coupled with X-Box Kinects technology, a projector and a sandbox that makes the learning come alive. Students will use the sandbox to recreate topographic, soil, geographic maps, or maps of historic locations, school or community. Weathering or erosion, landforms around the world, and water flow are examples of areas of study the sandbox would help bring alive.  See the AR Sandbox in action.
