Barron Associates Awarded Phase II Grant to Develop Neuroscience Education Game

Barron Associates has developed a novel video game for promoting neuroscience education, called “NeuroSPARKS.” The NeuroSPARKS game is controlled by special sensors that measures muscle activity in the arm, providing students with hands-on insight into neuroscience topics and technology. Barron Associates successfully tested an early prototype of the NeuroSPARKS game and has now been awarded a Phase II SBIR grant to further develop and evaluate the NeuroSPARKS system. Barron Associates will work with Charlottesville City Schools to integrate science curriculum content into the game and to conduct further evaluation with students.
