The Linux computer we built for the augmented reality sandbox will be spending time idle between sandbox sessions. What other ways can we put the computer to use? Distributed computing projects like Folding@Home rely on idle time to complete calculations. So, let’s put our computer to good use contributing to scientific research!
Creating an augmented reality sandbox for hands-on learning in science classrooms is (maybe?) a bit harder than it might seem. In early 2020, we embarked on a journey to build our own from scratch. Now in 2021, find out what hurdles we’ve faced, where we stand, and what we need to do to finish the project.
