Day 2 - Merge Explorer: Types of Reactions


When the Merge Cube was first released, there were new apps released. The list grew rapidly and it was difficult to keep up with all the different apps. The Merge Miniverse gathers all the educationally appropriate immersive resources including apps that didn’t require the Merge Cube, but all the apps were different, so it made it hard for classrooms to implement. When Merge announced the Merge Explorer app (iOS, Android), we were all relieved to see all the AR/VR experiences located in a single app.


There are free experiences in the Merge Explorer app, but viewing them all requires a subscription. Get access to a free trial here and test out all the experiences.


BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE! Watch the oak wood transform through a chemical reaction using the Merge Explorer app.

How can matter change states? What is the difference between a physical and chemical reaction? How are new substances created from different combinations of materials? Get these answers and more in the Types of Reactions activity.

In addition to the simulations in the Merge Explorer app, find lesson plan activities for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 on the Merge Dashboard. Happy leARning!
