In this session attendees will have the opportunity to interact with MERGE Cubes, and investigate the possibilities of using this simple yet complex technology in the K-8 classroom. We will also look at how the MERGE Cube can enhance lesson plans and lab experiments, allow for immersive discovery and bring coding and design to life. The session will then show the new EDU platform that provides collections of AR objects, lesson plans with activities for STEAM learning, coding, and creation, and can convert 3D models that students create into virtual objects. Finally, the session will conclude with an opportunity for attendees to interact with the technology.

MERGE enables active learning by enabling students to learn and create in entirely new ways while giving teachers simple AR/VR tools that increase student engagement, intellectual curiosity and classroom achievement.

At the core is the MERGE Cube - a digital school supply that extends learning beyond the limitations of device screens by giving students the ability to interact with virtual objects.
