A set of paper cards that helps students to understand physics through manipulating objects and formulas in augmented reality.

How can we make physics more engaging and accessible to high school students? With advancements in mobile AR technologies such as ARKit and ARCore, augmented reality is becoming a powerful tool to democratize education, giving access to materials that were previously out of reach to students. 

Newton aims to explore how we can bring physics out of the textbook and into our real world, using simple paper cards and controls to help manipulate the world around us. 

This AR app comes in two modes — an exploration mode and challenge mode, allowing the students to play with formulas as well as collaboratively answer questions to test their knowledge. This project is meant to sit within a classroom itself, and acts as a template that can eventually be extended to all types of topics in STEM.
