Reserve This For Your School Classroom  

April 27, 2017

he ESU 10 Network Information Systems Department has created a hands-on-exhibit using 3D visualization applications to teach earth science concepts to students. The augmented reality (AR) sandbox allows users to create topography models by shaping real sand, which is then augmented in real time by an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water. The system teaches geographic, geologic, and hydrologic concepts such as how to read a topography map, the meaning of contour lines, watersheds, catchment areas, levees, etc.

To reserve the sandbox for your school to use in various lessons including water cycle, geography, earth science, hydrology and learning through play click here or go to the ODIE Library at the ESU 10 website.
