The National Atomic Energy Commission of Argentina (CNEA) developed Augmented Reality experiences within educational programs to communicate the uses and advantages of this type of energy.

The National Atomic Energy Commission of Argentina decided to work with new technologies, specifically Augmented Reality (AR), to create immersive educational experiences about the benefits of this type of energy.

This initiative seeks to communicate and disseminate more information about the subject so that, the industry can be studied in depth using new formats whether in secondary schools or in different academic entities.

What is nuclear fission? How does a reactor work? These are some of the questions that are answered as the user navigates the Augmented Reality experience. To access it, interactive posters were made that invite the audience to scan them with CamOnApp from a cell phone or tablet.

The advantages of using Augmented Reality for educational purposes

This technology opens up new learning opportunities by transforming a traditional moment of reading information into an experience that involves our active participation. Here are some of the benefits:

– AR allows us to experiment with virtual objects modeled in 3D and take a 360º tour of their perspectives and angles.

– It facilitates the transmission of concepts and the retention of content by converting static formats into animated, interactive and gamified proposals.

– Learning materials are accessible at any time and in any place. They do not require the presence of physical supports. This encourages education outside the classroom, online or at a distance.

– Greater participation is generated by the curiosity of young, digital natives, when experimenting with new technological tools that stimulate learning.

– Increased accessibility and ease of implementation, since the only thing participants need to view AR content is a mobile device. This even has economic advantages, since, unlike Virtual Reality, it does not require the use of a helmet or any other hardware.

– It can be accessed individually or viewed with several colleagues simultaneously, making it a more cooperative learning experience.

Involving immersive technologies in educational contexts has great potential. With the rapid adoption of mobile devices by new generations, the barriers to implementing Augmented Reality content are disappearing. These key tools stimulate learning inside and outside the classroom in an innovative and accessible way.
