BrainSTEM is an interactive education project with Elizabeth Forward School District to develop immersive, interactive experiences for middle school students using the SMALLab (Situated Multimedia Arts Learning Lab), developed by Arizona State University.

SMALLab is a unique piece of technology that focuses on embodied learning, which blends learning with human-computer interaction. Embodied learning is collaborative, multimodal, and kinesthetic: by having students interact together in a physical setting, through touch, sight, and sound, they are more likely to remember what they learned long-term.

Our goal is to work with the faculty at Elizabeth Forward Middle School to pinpoint areas of learning that students struggle to master, and create embodied learning experiences that transform the classroom experience into a fully kinesthetic learning environment!
