A Tactile Engagement Platform
The Virtual Water Table is a mobile platform for tactile discovery about how human actions affect our waters.
The table uses Augmented Reality (AR) to project digital contours and simulated flowing water onto a hands-on sandbox.
The table is intended to enhance curricular connections to science and social studies at and beyond Milwaukee-area schools.
The Virtual Water Table currently features three modes for exploration: Sandbox, Game, and Map. The role-playing game was first shared publicly at the Green Schools Conference on June 14, 2018. We shared the upgraded table at Maker Faire on Sept. 29-30, 2018 at State Fair Park with over 1,000 guests! Our team is now working hard to update the table. For info on how a table visit can support your class or event, please see the 2019 engagement menu or contact us below.
