Abstract: related to supporting the intergenerational exploration of pollinators and plants in people’s backyards. The team developed a mobile augmented reality app focused on plant-pollinator interactions to make the life sciences appealing to rural families. We present results related to design elements that supported observation through an AR browser and checklist plus AR visualizations related to bees’ vision. We investigate how these AR elements influence families’ learning behavior in their backyards. This analysis contributes to the literature on how to design mobile augmented reality apps that are site-independent (i.e., not relying on GPS or other site-specific landmarks) for families’ collaborative learning opportunities in outdoor, home-based settings.
