Life Cycle of a Plant in AR

Created by Designmate for iOS, Plantale is an engaging learning app that takes students on a journey of a plant’s life. Using the Plantale app, students can explore a sunflower plant’s life cycle and reproductive cycle in augmented reality (AR). Four options within the app allow students to examine the plant and step through the stages of growth, from planting the seed to reproducing, withering, and dying. Animations, labels, informative text, and interactive elements help students see what happens in a plant, from the outside in, during all of these stages. The app covers internal anatomy and gives students a look at the outside of the plant during every stage, from seed onward. Topics such as room temperature, pH, and amount of water are addressed briefly. Students can also plant their own sunflower in AR and then return to that spot over the next several days to water and fertilize the plant to keep it healthy and watch it grow. Cost: $0.99
