With Parametric Studio education kits, students will create exciting projects in real life and then extend their exploration of their creation using augmented reality (AR) and virtual gamification. Two ways to use = two times the fun + two times the learning!
With the Terrarium kit, students learn about ecosystems, biomes, climate, and how to measure and record the temperature. Users make the kit their own by filling the terrarium with living plants, rocks, and water. Then, they can use the AR content to fill each terrarium with exotic augmented reality plants and animals and perform virtual experiments that explore the greenhouse effect on climate.
This 24-student class pack comes with directions and standards-aligned STEM lessons. Have more than 24 students in your class? Single add-ons are also available for purchase.
Each kit includes an easy-to-follow instructional guide that uses photos and written steps to help students assemble a fully functional machine. Parametric’s durable kits can be built and reused several times over.
Augmented Reality with Newton AR
You’ll receive an AR card for use with the FREE Newton AR app that lets students put their terrarium to the virtual test.
The immersive AR technology adds an awesome learning extension to each kit, but it is not required to meet the standard alignments. Only one device would be needed per small group of 4-6 students.
To use Newton AR, students lay out target cards as directed in the instructions. The app can simulate the maker kit’s performance, represent flow of a contraption, link parts of a puzzle together, and be used for quick prototyping. Students can even record their own demo walkthrough videos within the app!
