Mindz Brainplay is the perfect motivational session for schools wanting to build their years 7-10 focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Some Stage 4 and 5 syllabus documentation includes:

* Stages 4 & 5: Working Scientifically
* Stages 4 & 5 Life Skills
*
Stages 4 & 5 Visual design (Wearable technologies)

We visit schools throughout Sydney and Regional Areas. Our lead presenters are all trained teachers while specialist presenters are advanced science university students with a specific interest in neuroscience and communication. All presenters have their Working with Children clearance.

They – the students themselves will be actively involved. THEY will use the headset. THEY will see inside THEIR brain and THEY will use their brain power to control gaming characters. They can even witness a ‘brain challenge’ between two students who only use their mind power to score points. It’s immersive, innovative, motivational education.

In practice
Our EEG headsets can be used to help disabled people undertake tasks they’ve never been able to do such as moving prosthetic limbs, driving their wheelchair independently or switching on the TV. Brain control of devices is no longer in the realm of science fiction, but is here right now. When students see this in action, an entire new20160213_193341 world opens up.

Evaluation
If teachers require an assessment of the students’ retention and understanding of key concepts used in the session, MINDZ BRAINPLAY can provide that. Using their own smartphones, tablets or laptops, students enter our ‘room’ in the Socrative App to complete either a short 10-minute or longer 20-minute quiz. A class spreadsheet and individual student reports are then emailed to the teacher at the end of the day.

We can offer large assembly hall productions or sessions for smaller year or class groups and guarantee an informative and entertaining session in whatever format is chosen.socrative
