Over 100 tours of scientific wonders, including a guide through the solar system, and historical destinations are available, providing users and students with a more immersive form of engagement and education

This past year, Google allowed one million students to test Expeditions, an education app that immerses users in an augmented reality. Now the company is showcasing the results and has made the app available for public viewing, letting users view over 100 tours of exotic locals, scientific wonders and historical places all from the comfort of their mobile phones.

Available AR tours include scenic views of the Great Wall of China to microscopic glimpses of bacteria. There are also over 800 virtual-reality tours available through the app. The tours are accessible through virtual and augmented reality headsets, but if users do not have those materials, just their phone will work fine.

Aside from the app, Google is selling AR/VR kits through a collaboration with Best Buy Education. The kits are targeted to classrooms and will be filled with a tablet, VR viewers, phones and a router. Google continues to enhance its user experience by incorporating additional AR and VR capabilities, making its services more immersive, engaging and useful.
