Robstown ISD 4D technology

ROBSTOWN, Texas — Some students at Robert Driscoll Elementary School in Robstown are testing out new 4D technology in their 21st century community learning after school program. The four-dimensional z-space technology was implemented this school year, and has so far been a hit.

The students are focusing on learning STEM, which is science, technology, engineering and math. This program looks like games to the kids, but it tells them exactly what they're learning.

"What they're doing is they can see from every angle on there. Tthey're able to touch it, pull it out, bring it closer to them, and then turn the angles to see how many sides it has, how many vertices, it's a different type of learning for sure," says Abe Arevao, 21st Century coordinator.

The virtual experience helps students take a hands-on approach to learning - from looking inside the human heart to exploring different shapes and building roller coasters.

"I mean the teacher just stands at the board drawing, but you get to see with your own eyes, and you get to discover by yourself." second grader Aaron Rodruiguez says.

Robstown ISD has placed the order for this 4D technology to be in every school, from elementary to high school's after school program. They expect it to be operational by the end of next month.
