Augmented reality at the British Museum

This morning Big Brother and I headed to the British Museum and the Parthenon Galleries for the launch of the Gamar app which helps bring the museum to life with augmented reality. The app has been developed to enhance the museum-going experience for younger, technology savvy generations by ‘gamifying’ the learning experience. I thought this sounded perfect for Big Brother so we couldn’t wait to take a closer look.

‘A Gift for Athena’

When we arrived at the gallery he was handed a tablet and started the ‘A Gift for Athena’ game. It tells the story of how a gift for the goddess Athena’s birthday is stolen during a celebratory parade. Children are then asked to complete four challenges about the Parthenon temple to help get the gift back.

On the way, they will uncover fascinating details about famous statues, the wonderful stories behind many of the people depicted on the friezes, and the epic history of ancient Greece. It’s a lovely app, easy to use and with lots of information which really helped to bring the statues and friezes to life. I loved seeing how it made him actually look at the objects on display and helped him understand about their context. The challenges were fun and it was really interesting to see how technology could enhance his experience.

How it works

This pioneering technology triggers interactive, augmented reality gaming experiences when looking at real-life objects and environments. Set to change the way we learn in and interact with public galleries, augmented reality will create a fun learning experience that helps people understand their surroundings. Technology company Gamar perfectly merges culture and technology with its easy to use app and games. Suitable for children aged seven upwards, simply hold a smart phone or tablet near an object and watch the display as the two instantly interact – helping children learn about the stories and history behind exhibits. Don’t delay, visit today and be one of the first to try it out. The Gamar app is available through Google Play and App Store for FREE and each game is priced at £2.49, for more information see www.gamar.com.

Our morning out involved visiting some new stations as part of our London Underground Challenge, which was both exciting and tiring :)

Cardboard tube apples

We have a plethora of cardboard tubes and it seems like every day Big Brother brings me one and says we could craft with it! Today we crafted with cardboard tubes and made a fun little Autumnal display – cardboard tube apples.

When dry carefully cut your tube into thin rings.

Make a small hole in the top of each one with the split pin or scissors and place the rings inside each other, holding them together with the split pin.

We’ve displayed ours in a bowl and I think they look good enough to eat!
