A recent article in the journal Science challenged science educators at all levels to become more creative and immerse science learners in more creative endeavors. Eighteen preservice elementary methods students at East Carolina University engaged with two different augmented reality apps as a way of integrating technology into their science teaching. Students created activities around the apps. Findings suggest augmented reality is an exciting way to immerse preservice teachers using technology and integrating the Bring Your Own Device initiative. Further discussion about how to expound on these technologies for great engagement across the curriculum is warranted.
