Google AR Pioneer Program Visited O’Hara Park!

O’Hara Park was selected by Google to participate in its Augmented Reality (AR) Pioneer Program!  Kudos to  Justin Baffico, who organized a wonderful day as more than 600 students got to experience the AR component of Google Expeditions before it’s released to the public!

If you’d like Google to bring this program to your site, please use this SIGN UP FORM (the more requests Google receives from a site, the better the chances of being selected).

Google’s AR Program also selected Oakley Elementary and will be visiting there on Dec. 19!  Woo hoo!!
