Physics can be difficult to grasp—even for adults. So how do you teach the subject’s abstract ideas to middle schoolers?

Show some of the concepts in action. That’s the idea behind Peer, an experimental project from New York-based design firm Moment that uses mixed reality to teach middle schoolers scientific ideas such as aerodynamics, sound waves, gravity, and acceleration. The project, though purely conceptual, is a tantalizing hint at where technology in the classroom could be headed next.

A very cool computational thinking site has emerged that you should know about... Check out the "The Tessera: Ghostly Tracks" - which goes to a whole different level of coding.

A short description - "Tessera: Ghostly Tracks is a real-world experience where players try to identify the ghosts of figures in computer history that are haunting "the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA."

The documentation is located here: https://goo.gl/wXlgwW
