The use of visual aids in learning process has been proven to be very useful and effective in helping the students understand and memorise the topic that learned. Most of the topics learned by the students in Science subject are most affected by the help of visual aids including the topic about the Solar System. However, the existing learning aids for the Solar System topics has many limitations that hindered the students from understanding the lesson better such as still images, only in 2D visualisations and so on. The main objective of this project is to produce an accurate simulation of the solar system using the augmented technology environment. Augmented reality is used to superimpose digitally a computer generated graphics, images or animations onto the real world environment. With augmented reality technology, the simulation can be projected in 3D visualization and by implementing animations in the simulation, the students can see for themselves the actual movements and rotations of the planets in the solar system. Moreover, the students are able to manipulate the camera position in order to view the simulation from various angles. With the simulation, the student can learn, understand, and memorise the topic easily and interactively.
