Reality Sandbox for Elementary Kids

Recently, the young kids at BHS created an augmented reality sandbox William Byrne STEM Elementary School on Monday. Teachers say they are already seeing connections to classroom projects made between kids. This new piece of equipment is rare to see in public schools and everyone around the project is proud.

An Xbox camera and projector up top are hooked up to a computer down below. The camera senses the sand levels in the sandbox, sends the data to the computer where it is processed, then sends it to the projector which then displays it in different colors in the sand.  The sandbox was also made by Burnsville students which is just more that proves how intelligent 191 kids are.

Congrats on the invention.
