Topographic Planetary Study with Augmented Reality - CEIPSO El Encinar
14/December/2017
47 students - 1st and 2nd ESO

On the 14th of December, students from El Encinar school came to ESAC to work on the topographic studies scientific case with augmente reality.

At the beggining of the visit, our team answered several question brought by the students about the science done by the European Space Agency or about what they have tostudy to become an astronaut. After the welcoming we slipt into two groups, one of them first visit the scale models present at ESAC of missions like Gaia, Rosetta or ISO. They also could see how hard and weightless a piece of the Ariane 5 rocket is.

In the meantime, the other group was doing the scientific case in which they learnt how to read topographic maps and how to use them for several cases. One of the greatest tools in this scientific case was the agumented reality sandbox, using 3D cameras, a light projector and a sandbox, the students can model different surface features in 3D in real time. 

We hope that you enjoyed this great experience!
