Student-Created Projects Build Upon Real World Technologies to Offer Innovative Capabilities to Amputees and Limb-Different Individuals. NeuroMaker, developer of innovative STEM classroom kits and curricula for middle and high school students, today announced the winners of its first student competition …
The time is finally here! Join us to review the top submissions of the 2020 NeuroMaker Creative Challenge and preview our newest addition to the NeuroMaker experience: NeuroMaker BCI!
Reviewed by Dr. Wasifa Jamal, Dr. Molei Wu, BrainCo USA President Max Newlon and Product Manager Andrew Bannish, students from around the world submitted their ideas for improving life for amputees using materials in their classroom. Over $4,000 has been awarded to teams around the USA for students to continue the development of their ideas.
Congratulations to Valor High School, Phineas Banning High School, Perry Central High School and the Vinci Robotics Academy for your fantastic contributions this year!
Join us with Dr. Wu, who created the BrainRobotics prosthetic hand which is the winner of the 2019 Time Magazine Best Inventions of the Year, 2019 Red Dot Best of the Best, multiple CES, multiple Digital Trends and other accolades.
Students from around the world submitted their questions to Dr. Wu to learn more about the lives of amputees and the technical challenges needed to create effective prosthetics. These students are participating in the 2020 NeuroMaker Creative Challenge, which challenges middle and high school students to create prosthetics to be reviewed by a Harvard and MIT alumni judging panel and $4,500 in awards available.
