A few weeks ago Antara from Trendyworks Technologies contacted me to tell me about their new augmented reality app, Augmenter. After playing around for a little bit and having some kids use Augmenter, I have fallen in love (again) with another cool app!
This magical AND educational app was created just for teachers to bring science, social studies and math alive in their classrooms. Over 300 models are available with the paid version ($7.99) for K-12 students. There are also 13 FREE models available when you download the FREE app. Here are just a few pictures using the FREE models:
STATUE OF LIBERTY
STILL MOVING AND ROARING...
LIBERTY BELL (that I took apart)
Arrangement and types of teeth
Parts of Ear
Sectional view of eye
Parts of a flower
Flemings left hand rule
Magnetic field lines
Atomic structure of 50+ elements including hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, Nitrogen etc.
Molecular structure of benzene, carbon di oxide, methane, ethane etc.
Electron dot structure of ethane, ethene
Animals include animated dinosaur, animated tiger, elephant, giraffe, fish, deer, stag, rhino, hippo, duck, dolphin, beetle, penguin, rat, scorpion, tortoise etc.
Fruits like Apple, orange, mango, pomegranate, banana, guava, pear, pineapple etc.
Many flowers like hibiscus, jasmine, sun flower, lily, lotus, rose, tulip
10 types of christmas trees used across America.
American history models:
Important monuments like lincoln memorial, statue of liberty, liberty bell etc.
Math 3D geometry:
Surface area of Cube
Surface area of Cuboid
Surface area of Sphere
What really makes this AR app stand out are the cool interactions. Students can add titles for parts of the model, take apart individual parts, hide parts, highlight parts, set transparency, break apart the whole model, analyze parts, take screenshots and use a pen tool for drawing over the models.
How does it work? All you need to do is download the FREE app and print out one of these markers.
Launch the app and everything is pretty much self explanatory.

If you are like me then you can't (well...don't have the funds to) download paid apps at school. However, I would still download this app to access all of the free features...it is pretty cool! If you are one of the lucky ones and can download paid apps, I think this one is definitely worth the $7.99 which will give you access to ALL 300 models! This app would be great for you to download if you have kids at home. Happy exploring :)
