Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be harnessed inside of a smart phone to enhance the education experience. The purpose of this project is to create a shared AR experience that allows users to manipulate 3D representations of molecules, using only their mobile devices. The mobile application was created using Google’s ARCore software to provide an AR baseline environment and Unity 3D editing software to build the application. It allows students to take concepts from the real world that are metaphysical in nature and give them an on-screen 3D model to visualize and maneuver in a virtual environment mirroring their own. The mobile application is meant to be a tool for students to improve their chemistry content knowledge using the phones in their pockets inside the classroom and on the go.
