Our Virtual Explorer lets you drop a 3D model of the entire Washington, D.C. National WWI Memorial anywhere. Place it, Scale it and Explore it in your own personal living spaces (and soon in classrooms).
It is not only an accurate AR model of the entire National WWI Memorial, but it is also filled with all sorts of learning and discovery experiences about WWI.
It’s for the young, the young at heart – and basically anyone who owns an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet. Best of all, it is FREE.
Can you really put the entire National WWI Memorial in my pocket?
How does this help me learn or teach about WWI?
Spend a little time with us and learn about this innovative 21st century way of honoring the past.
You’ll meet the project producer and the team of brilliant young programmers who are putting it all together. We’ll even lift the curtain and let you see how some of this is done.
Everyone who attends, will be invited to become Beta Testers for the App. That means you get a copy of it before anyone else… and you can feed back to the development team to help make this wonderful tool even better.
