Augmented Reality Sandbox - Now OPEN
Developed by a researcher from UC Davis, the ARS allows children to create their own topographical landscapes using sand, which is changed in real time by a digital overlay that shows contour lines and simulated water. The terrain is brought to life by an overhead projector, combining the tactile childhood joy of playing with sand with the latest in virtual reality technology. The ARS encourages play, curiosity, and self-driven discovery.
The Museum is is designed for ages birth to eight-years-old to allow children to "learn-by-doing"!
Join us during Museum business hours to learn about math, science, art and social learning skills!
