Gravbox is an interactive sandbox that simulates gravitational dynamics and was developed to teach abstract astronomy concepts to students.
While gravitational interactions are the most important processes in astronomy, it is difficult to visually portray them in the classroom. Development of the GravBox aims to remedy this by creating an interactive Augmented Reality (AR) environment for use in high-school and undergraduate astronomy classes.
