AstroReality’s Education solution is a technology bridge between tactile and digital to discover the space like never before!
With their Solar System Mini set, students can interact and visualize the planets through the Augmented Reality technology by pointing their devices at the 3D printed planetary models.
Working with these AR replicas, students are engaged in an immersive learning process; they will see the planets come to life their location, and their rotation speed around the sun. In addition, they will have access to information and data directly from NASA and other accredited sources at the tip of their fingers.
Each planetary model is crafted and designed to utilize the highest quality renderings of the planets. It’s also precisely made with up to 0.1millimeters per pixel precision based on NASA data.
QuiverVision new AR digital aquarium environment is incredible! It’s used to link the mobile AR coloring experiences with large, shared, and public displays. Overall, it can combine different AR-colored fish with other additional features and educational elements.
When students finish coloring the sheets containing different types of fish (Star Fish, Sea Shell, Jellyfish), they can scan them using the Quiver App to magically bring their fish to life with the Augmented Reality technology. Afterward, teachers can submit all the classroom’s custom-colored sheets to the digital environment where students can watch their fish swim all together on the large screen!
This digital environment has become a quite popular product across schools, STEM Labs, events, libraries, museums, conferences, etc…
ANSTO XR released a new AR periodic table where students learn more about its elements through the Augmented Reality technology. It reveals a world of protons, neutrons, and electrons and illustrates how useful they are to science and industry when students point their tablets at it.
The program is designed to make STEM subjects engaging and exciting for the next generation, according to the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Karen Andrews.
“It’s so important that we get as many children as possible studying these subjects because so many of the jobs of the future will require the skills,” said Andrews.
How to Use it?
Teachers need to simply download the free app, get the students to point their device at the ANSTO periodic poster on a wall (or the pocket poster) and instantly students can see new and engaging information about some of the most popular elements; including the arrangement of the atom and information on how the element is used in everyday life.

Plickers, the student response system app, is a formative assessment tool that allows teachers to collect on-the-spot formative assessment data without the need for student devices.
It’s a free, interactive formative assessment tool that uses printable “paper clickers” instead of clicker devices. Each student is assigned a unique Plickers card that has a black and white image similar to a QR code. The letters A, B, C, and D are written in small print around the edge of the image, with one letter on each side of the card.
During the lesson, the teacher displays a multiple-choice or true-false question. Then students hold up their cards and rotate them to indicate which answer they think is correct. The teacher scans all of the response cards at once, using the Plickers app (Appleor Google) installed on a mobile device to get instant feedback. He or she can instantly see the student responses and assessment data for that question including who has the correct answer and who does not.
Students can hold up their personal cards (which resemble QR codes) in order to respond to teacher prompts. The direction that students hold the card determines the answer choice which will be recorded. There are also multiple variations on response cards that can be printed here, along with laminated versions that can be purchased from Amazon.
