Elements go AR

April 11th, 2014 · No Comments · Classroom

You have to play with the app to see the magic.  Combining sodium and chlorine in the lab would not be school chemistry project- but with this app and the paper cubes you construct, you can make salt (at least online!) Elements 4D is augmented reality app for the iPad/Android  that allows students to experiment  with elements without a lab.  Samantha Morra share this slide presentation that will give you a good idea of how the app works.  All you need to do is print out the cubes (there are currently six of them) and glue them together.  You can access the cubes here.  The app has already been installed on the Science iPads at both the high school and middle school.
