Blog 24: Spacecraft 3D

If you use iPads in school and are teaching about Space then I recommend that you give your class some time to explore Nasa's Spacecraft 3D application for iPad (free).


It is an augmented reality app allowing pupils to bring many of NASA's spacecraft and satellites in the classroom. Point the camera at the trigger image and, hey presto, the craft appears.  Some of the images can be manipulated, allowing you to turn them, extend aerials, etc.


The kids loved it. It also makes a fantastic interactive writing prompt. Try it. You'll be amazed.
