Augmented Reality (AR) Floating Farm Project
Youth were engaged in learning about augmented reality (AR) by creating a virtual Floating Farm. The Floating Farm was a 6-Saturday workshop series pilot program offered during the spring of 2019 at the UA main campus where five youth learned about AR, a “physical” real-world space and applied virtual graphics or objects to it. Students designed and created their own farms in AR and at the student showcase shared with parents, family, and friends their AR Floating Farm. Andie Rodriguez a master student in the College of Fine Arts School of Arts earning a degree in Media Arts developed the AR Floating Farm curriculum and partnered with Jasmine Lopez an AmeriCorp Member and Dr. Gerardo Lopez Assistant Professor & Extension Specialist 4-H STEM to offer the STEM program. A fascinating STEM activity of learning AR by building a Floating Farm.
