Toledo Technology Academy students got a chance to look at a map in an unconventional way: by playing in a sandbox.
An Augmented Reality Sandbox to be exact.
A topographic map was projected onto the sand.
Students could then move the sand around with their hands, thus altering the topographic map.
Students enjoyed getting an opportunity to learn in a different way.
"It's nice that it's hands on, because it allows anybody from any age to go up to it, and move the sand around and get a chance to learn how to read a map", said TTA senior Nathaniel Ford.
The Toledo Technology seniors got to design and build the sandboxes themselves.
