  • SuperChemVR: A Immersive Reality Chemistry Game
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test SuperChemVR, a virtual environment integrated within a Virtual Reality (VR) headset for an immersive exploration of a chemistry lab. While chemistry labs offer the benefits of hands-on experimentation to help students learn abstract concepts, they are costly to maintain, supervise, and pose ... »
  • Mission US: Time Snap
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior research and development (in part supported by a 2014 ED/IES SBIR award), the project team developed Mission U.S., a series of web- and app-based games for topics in U.S. history. With this Phase I funding, the team will extend Mission U.S. by developing and testing a prototype of a virtual reality (VR) platform to immerse students in ... »
  • CloudLab: Software Development for Hands-On Science Learning
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior research and development, the project team developed PocketLab, a set of web-based hands-on science simulations for middle school classrooms. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of CloudLab, a classroom management platform to extend the functionality of PocketLab. The prototype will include a portal so ... »
  • A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this ... »
  • Cyberchase Fractions Quest
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Cyberchase Fractions Quest, a web-based mathematics game for students in grade 3 and 4. Research shows that inadequate understanding of fractions can persist from early grades through higher education, and that success in fractions predicts future success in mathematics and other STEM subjects ... »
  • Development of an Online, Multi-Challenge Platform for K-12 Students
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test an open online platform that posts student-led engineering project challenges for Kindergarten to grade 12 classrooms. Research demonstrates that improved attitudes towards engineering in elementary and middle school are imperative to increase the pursuit of STEM degrees and careers. This ... »
  • Cyberchase Fractions Quest
    Date: 05/01/2016
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior research and development, the project team and partners developed Cyberchase, a multimedia story-based series for students to practice and learn math. Researchers will develop and test a prototype of a mobile app-based fractions game to be integrated within the multimedia series. The prototype will adjust to students of different skill ... »
  • Improving Middle School STEAM through Citizen Science within a Digital Learning Platform
    Date: 05/01/2016
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    This project team will develop and test a prototype of Planet 3, a multi-media online platform to apply real world problems (e.g., pollution, overpopulation) to middle school earth and life science learning. The prototype will include videos, simulations, and games to allow opportunities for students to explore problem sets, collect and analyze ... »
  • SuperChem VR: The Immersive Reality Chemistry Game
    Date: 05/01/2016
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    This project team will develop and test a prototype of SuperChem VR, a game to support high school students' basic chemistry learning. The prototype will include a set of web-based laboratory modules which will be integrated within a virtual reality headset to allow for a 360-degree visual exploration of the environment. The prototype will also ... »
  • Game-Based Learning and Assessment Computer Applications with Direct Representations of Mathematics
    Date: 05/01/2016
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    Purpose: The team will fully develop and test three puzzle-based math games that adaptively assess and support student learning in middle school classrooms. A principle objective of middle school math is to prepare students for more complicated and advanced STEM topics, providing the foundation for a wide variety of college majors and careers. ... »
