STEAMverse Day 13 - Object Viewer Engines
Welcome to the ARVRinEDU Advent Calendar 2022! Our special focus this year is on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). These mini blogs will spotlight an immersive resource that can be easily implemented into the curriculum.
Merge Object Viewer Engines (ENGINEER)
Last December, I focused on multiple ways to use your Merge Cube in the classroom. The Merge Object Viewer app includes over 1000 hands-on digital teaching aids to support your classroom curriculum. One topic that aligns well with the engineering focus for the Advent Calendar is the engine collection.
Using augmented reality, get a closer look at how engines work. The animated AR scenes can be viewed in three modes (3D, world, or cube). Each view will deliver an engaging experience for the students to dig into the content. The engines collection includes a variety of machines, including:
Radial Pneumatic Engine
Pneumatic Engine Toy Car
Opposed Piston Engine
Radial Engine Mechanism
Symmetric Opposed Pistons Engine Mechanism
Sturgeon Double Piston Engine
Wankel Rotary Engine
Circular Piston Engine
Airbus A320 Turbine Engine
Diaphragm Air Engine Mechanism
Combustion Engine Piston
Swiss Lever Escapement
Steps to get started
Download the Merge Object Viewer app here.
Sign in to your Merge account. Some content cards are locked if you don’t have a subscription. Scroll to the Engines collection.
Select your preferred view at the top and interact with the objects.
Select the “i” next to Engines at the bottom and select “Share” to view your QR code or collection code. Provide this information to your students. Enjoy!
