Kid's Adventure Room Grand Opening

Saturday, May 28th 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

  • Augmented Reality Archaeological Sandbox

    • Our augmented reality sandbox combines the classic feel of a playground sandbox with the advanced technology of augmented reality and provides a one-of-a-kind experience. The custom-made table is filled with sand and a projector mounted to the ceiling, displays an interactive archaeological excavation onto the sand. A motion sensor attached to the projector detects any movements and changes to the sand, and the projection will react in real-time and display artifacts at various depths. Augmented reality layers teach the children about the stratification layers of artifacts from the more recent one near the top, while the oldest are the deepest. Children are provided with a plastic trowel and brush to find and carefully reveal the artifacts.

    • Families will be given a time slot for playing at the virtual sandbox when they come in, space is limited so it will be on a first-come-first-served basis.

We are very excited to reveal our newest addition to VVAC, the Kid's Adventure Room! Below includes the activities that will be available day of to participate in with your family. ​

Admission will be free for parents and their children.
