Imagine that instead of watching TV after dinner, your family is heading out for an Augmented Reality (AR) hiking tour of the DinoTracks site.  Once you download the tour and navigate to the first stop, you see an outline highlighting the dinosaur footprints on the rock in front of you by simply scanning the QR code and holding your phone to the landscape.  You also see animations of the Theropod dinosaurs that made the tracks, 360 degree panoramas of the prehistoric ecosystems in which they lived, and social media links to share what you’ve learned.  ExploreAR experiences provide engaging ways to learn, reasons to take a hike, a great introduction to AR technology, and a stronger community connection through shared learning.
