Mr. Miller’s third grade gets an up close look at triceratops.

On Thursday January 18th, all of 7th and 8th grade along with a few 3rd grade classes got to pilot the new Google Augmented Reality on the new Asus phones and selfie sticks which haven’t been released to the public yet. Alicia, an employee from Google, came and taught us how to use them properly. Once students learned how to use them they walked around the room in groups of 3 to 4. Through the phones, students could see interesting 3D objects, such as dinosaurs for the 3rd graders. 8th graders studied artifacts from World War II, like the Higgins boat, used in the D-Day invasion. On top of seeing the objects through the phones, they learned interesting information about each object that they had seen. After experiencing the Google Augmented Reality, 7th grader Ayron Landa, who looked at 3-D renderings of Leonardo Da Vinci’s inventions and the solar system, said, “ I thought it was really cool, because you got to experience the history way back then.” Another student named Daryl Vu said “I thought it was pretty cool. it definitely open a new area of learning for me and it was really interesting.” As a follow up, 8th grade history students created a lesson on what artifacts they would recommend for Thomas Jefferson’s presidency.

Mrs. Andrade’s STEM lab also participated in the Google AR where a variety of grade levels looked at different subjects.
