In the face of Interference

A reduced-size version of the Solid Learning concept model

One week remains but crowd-funding efforts have been impacted by interference with teachers taking part in the STEMulate Learning program. No matter the reason why someone complained about crowd funding, STEMulate Learning and SOLID Learning will continue to conduct STEM workshops and to develop new materials for educators and students.

Taking Part in Round 3 of the #SciFund Challenge

SciFund3Icon

STEMulate Learning is taking part in Round 3 of the #SciFund Challenge, trying to crowd-fund equipment for our research into K-12 STEM education. We are attempting to obtain support for a basic 3D scanner and a EEG neurocomputing headset to improve our student’s ability to control their robots by thought alone. If we exceed the initial funding goals, we will obtain a high-resolution 3D scanner suitable to museum artifact curation. All of our work will be shared openly through file sharing sites like Thing-i-Verse so that students and teachers around the world can take advantage of our results. Continue reading

#SciFund Round 3 “Telepathic Cyborg Robots”

Telepathic Cyborg Robots Icon

In Round 3 of the #SciFund Challenge, I will be crowd-funding a neurocomputing headset to expand our preliminary efforts with thought-controlled devices. The preliminary prototypes can only control the speed of a robot or train, but with the Emotiv EPOC headset we will be able to let students take control of complex devices and to identify enhancements for their learning environment itself. This project provides a bridge directly connecting student’s thoughts and dreams to their creations, providing a spur towards STEM interest. Continue reading
