KIS International School following the lead of UC DAvis has introduced a new interactive way to learn about science concepts and topography through an augmented reality sandbox. The sandbox is real students can shape the sand to create mountains,dams,rivers and lakes. With help from a #D camera which measures the distance to the sand below the topographic lines elevation colours and water are created and projected onto the sand in real time. Students can also make it rain changing the topography by holding their hand above the sand KIS designed and added a unique feature specifically for younger learners. Two physical buttons connected and coded using Makey-Makey were incorporated with the sandbox to create a flood or a drought.
This hands on experience will be part of the KIS Maker Space in support of the learning of the STEAM (Science Engineering Art and Math) subjects including geography, topography, landform, geology and hydrology.
