If you are going to be at ISTE 2023 you will most likely find the Merge Cube! I will most definitely stop by their booth. Each year they offer raffles and chances to win a Merge Cube so if you are there, definitely stop by. The Merge Cube was developed by MergeEDU and lets you hold digital 3D objects through the cube. The Merge Cube has 1000+ hands-on teaching aids, and over 100+ interactive science simulations that can be used at home or in the classroom. They now have a Merge Headset that adapts to VR. On the MergeEDU website, you will find a FREE 3-month individual subscription to try out. It is available on iOS, Android, Chromebook, and Windows. I highly recommend it for any age group or STEM content area. They also offer professional development resources, funding resources, a blog, and information on research specific to the impact of AR/VR on student achievement. Check out the research here.
