The AR sandbox project combines 3D visualization applications with a hands-on sandbox exhibit to teach earth science concepts.

Designed by researchers at University of California - Davis, the hands-on exhibit allows learners to physically explore topographic and bathymetric concepts, relationships, and visualize the processes that result from manipulating the sand.
