Research Institution

This project will fully develop LabAR, an augmented reality (AR) app for students to perform hands-on physical science investigations. Using the on-device camera, LabAR will augment the environment around the user with simulated instruments and equipment, real-time data visualizations, and annotations. The simulation will be designed to look and feel realistic to maximize transferability of knowledge between the simulation and the real world. Designed to be integrated with standard instructional practices, LabAR will include 40 modules with hands-on investigation aligned to a particular NGSS standard. The project will also provide a teacher handbook to support classroom implementation.
