Augmented Reality Sandbox with GNS Science
The 3D augmented reality technology of the Augmented Reality Sandbox shows topographic maps and examples of landforms and water bodies. It is a fantastic tool to conduct hands-on interactive learning exercises and we are excited to bring it to the Wairarapa.
Dates: TBC – Term 2
Times: 2 Workshops AM and PM
Tutor: GNS Science
Course Information for Augmented Reality Sandbox
The use of a sandbox to investigate map, landform, and water concepts disarms students and allows them to fully participate and discover.
Small groups of students will move through different learning stations including;
Environmental activities that consider climate change and erosion,
Symbology and graphing,
Concepts that will be easier once learned through the interactive sandbox. The scientists facilitating the activities will support the learning process through inquiry-based investigation, that is posing questions, scenarios or problems that will enable the students to understand map representations and concepts, and land and water interactions.
Opportunity brought to the Wairarapa by GNS Science and REAP Wairarapa through the Unlocking Curious Minds funding
