Advances in augmented reality (AR) interfaces create a new possibility for innovative learning tools in education. This thesis explores the application of a projected augmented reality system and its use in science education. Through this work, we provide some brief insights into the potential and challenges of using the projection augmented model in a learning environment. With a focus on physics education, we developed tangible simulations of magnetic fields and other phenomena through the means of augmentation. We describe also the means to integrate and apply AR in a classroom environment. Our investigation analyzes the effects of augmented reality on student learning outcomes and the usability of our model. Quantitative and qualitative evidence suggests that the projection augmented model may complement learning in ways that current interfaces and learning methods are lacking.
