AR Sandbox

The GIS Outreach and Community Engagement Lab uses our Augmented Reality Sandbox to teach about physical geography, map reading, and watersheds. The original grant for the prototype was from the Tennessee Teaching and Learning Center here at UTK. We quickly saw the potential of the sandbox for teaching purposes and applied for a Community Engagement grant to upgrade our sandbox. We are very pleased that the AR Sandbox is such a big hit wherever we take it.
