Google Expedition Day: Expeditions Augmented Reality (AR) Demo

Google expeditions

On Tuesday, February 13thfrom 2:30 to 3:00 PM, parents are invited to the Tech Lab (Room 219) for a sneak peak of a new program: Expeditions AR, an unreleased feature of Expeditions!

With Expeditions AR, teachers and students map the physical classroom and place 3D objects like one of Michelangelo’s statues on the students’ desks so that everyone can examine the statue together at the same time. Anything from a strand of DNA to a whirling tornado can be brought into the classroom.

Students will use our devices to get up close to see detail or step back to get a sense of scale and point out new discoveries together. Teachers are able to highlight specific points of interest on the object and incorporate it to suit the lesson.
