Engineering Augmented Reality: The Interactive Classroom PBL Project
Students will transform their classroom into an interactive experience by incorporating mixed reality elements of augmented reality, virtual reality, and holograms.
Lesson 1: In this lesson, students will find out what virtual reality is and how it came to be. They will experiment with depth perception to find out how virtual reality viewers work, and get hands on experience with virtual reality viewers and images.
Lesson 2: In this lesson, students will find out what augmented reality is and how it can be used. They will plan a video to use for augmentation and compare and contrast augmented reality and virtual reality.
Lesson 3: In this lesson students will take a look at how holograms work, what is and isn't really a hologram, build a hologram viewer, and make a hologram of themselves.
Lesson 4: This final lesson of a four lesson project culminates in a project called the Interactive Classroom, where students transform their classroom into an informative and interactive space for visiting students, parents, and community members.
