During the last decade the development of modern digital media such as smartphones and tablet computers has enabled new experimental possibilities in STEM education. Besides these now nearly ubiquitous devices, the fields of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) also made huge progress and reached education. In this paper we introduce an AR experiment alongside the basic idea of this column and following prior work. In the experiment high school students use smartglasses and real-time measurement data to study Kirchhoff's circuit laws in electrical DC circuits.
