Seventh- and eighth-grade students at Northern Hills Middle School participated in the Google Expeditions Augmented Reality program. The seventh-grade students participated in the “DNA and RNA” program as well as “Forces of Nature.” Eighth-grade students took part in looking at “da Vinci’s Inventions” and the “Solar System.” According to a news article by Madison Bennett, NHMS robotics and computer science teacher, Adam Zavislak, said that he stumbled upon the program while reading the Google for Education newsletter. He then completed an application to have Google bring in augmented reality equipment to the school, which allowed teachers to spend a day incorporating it into their lessons. “It’s taking a 2-D textbook and putting it into a 3-D world,” Zavislak said.
