K-8 Science Activities
Give every student a powerful new way to engage with science curriculum! Merge EDU activities are designed to engage children as they learn about important science topics. Use it to kick off units, dive deeper into lessons, or reinforce what has already been taught with traditional methods.
AR Creation and Sharing
Merge EDU enables endless opportunities to create and share 3D objects within the classroom and around the world! Students can make a work of art in Microsoft Paint 3D, design an engineering model in Tinkercad, scan a real-world object with Qlone, or download a 3D model from an online library, then upload it to view on the Merge Cube.
Spatial Learning Tools
Explore Science in Completely New Ways
Merge Explorer uses innovative AR/VR spatial learning technology to teach standards-aligned science topics from K-8th grade in completely new ways.
Transform 3D models into virtual objects you can hold and share
Object Viewer lets you upload, view, and share 3D objects on the merge Cube! Easily turn 3D models in to virtual objects you can hold in the palm of your hand.
The Teacher Dashboard gives teachers the ability to easily navigate their classroom’s content, explore and share activities, and track student progress.

Actually, it’s quite simple:
- The Class Packs allow students to use the platform daily in a single classroom. This includes experiencing learning in augmented or virtual reality, creating content that they can convert to virtual objects, and collaborating. Your students can use it as often as they want, but the quantity of licenses are limited to your classroom enrollment.
- The Lab Packs are intended for learning in computer labs, STEM labs, etc. where every student in a school will need to use the platform content and tools -- but infrequently (e.g. once/week). This license allows all students in your school to use it, but not concurrently.
- The School and District Licenses are intended for everyday use by all students enrolled in each school. It’s the best value in terms of cost and learning impact as all grades benefit.
You can purchase a 5-pack that will allow for up to 5 additional student licenses and provide 5 additional Cubes.
No. The students can log in / log out through your school’s single sign-on system.
We support sign-on with Microsoft, Google, ClassLink, and Clever, and we're working on automatic provisioning of student accounts from your rosters with Microsoft School Data Sync, as well as ClassLink. If you use a different system, let us know and we can discuss it.
Yes, every student user must have a license.
We will provide a limited number of free teacher and administrator licenses, depending upon the Pack that is purchased.
