We demonstrate how Smart Glasses can support high school science experiments. The vision is to (1) reduce the" technical" effort involved in conducting the experiments (measuring, generating plots etc.) and to (2) allow the students to interactively see/manipulate the theoretical representation of the relevant phenomena while at the same time interacting with them in the real world. As a use case, we have implemented a Google Glass app for a standard high school acoustics school experiment (determining the relationship between tone frequency that hitting a glass filled with water generates and the amount of water in the glass). We evaluated the system with a group of 36 high grade students split into a group using our application and a control group using an existing tablet based system. We show a statistically significant advantage in experiment execution speed, cognitive load, and curiosity.
