NCMA Explore

NCMA Educator Camille Tewell describes NCMA Explore, a new resource for middle school students

Visit the virtual museum! NCMA Explore is a new, innovative resource created to support learning at the middle school level. It reimagines how students engage with ancient civilizations by harnessing the power of immersive technology and the learning potential that lies within museum objects.

NCMA Explore features a virtual museum campus and gallery buildings that link to historical spaces containing ancient objects from five regions across the globe. Students learn about ancient civilizations through gamification and exploring NCMA collections in augmented reality (AR). To use NCMA Explore, you need an internet connection and a laptop, desktop, or Chromebook with a keyboard and trackpad or mouse. Headphones and a microphone are helpful but not required.
