A view of the stars in the sky

Students work in teams to create an Augmented Reality (AR) Tour of a Zodiac constellation for other students in the school to experience. In order to create their tours, students will learn about the electromagnetic spectrum, parallax, absolute magnitude, apparent magnitude, the life cycle of stars, nuclear fusion, and atomic structure. Students will each be responsible for one star in their group’s constellation, and will individually create four AR Tours of their star, each focused on a different component of the content. The project culminates with a gallery walk showcase in which student docents guide visitors through their AR Constellation Tours.
