Later Gator Ball Launcher
CREATING MAGICAL LESSONS
When faculty from the Laurel School, a nationally recognized independent day school for girls, heard about the IC’s work with HoloLens, they came for a visit and immediately recognized the immersive headset as an ideal learning platform for students.
Science Teacher Jessie Sun led the charge to collaborate with the IC on app development, focusing on creating pilot applications that would immediately advance how students learn, but also help Laurel explore ways to integrate the technology from a pedagogical and logistical standpoint.
The first app developed, Later Gator, created a holographic launcher, control panel and exploration space for physics students to predict variables associated with mechanical motion. A second app in development will help students understand the dynamic nature of atoms and atomic structures with unique 3-D visualizations of the electron shell.
