Stage 6 Working Scientifically

NSW Stage 6 Working Scientifically

Mindz will guide classes through a 90-120 minute scientific exploration using EEG headsets we provide (up to 2).

The session is based around group scientific investigation, not lecture and presentation. After a 15 minute introduction, students will design an investigation and then collect, analyse and evaluate data following scientific method. They will then communicate this information to a specific audience.

For those new to science
If you have students new to the sciences, designing their own research project can be daunting. We offer an additional ‘practice session’ where students are guided through a research task using scientific method and our EEGs. This is a very step by step session which may not be suitable for advanced science students.

Outcome Points: (relevant to all the sciences)
11/12-1, 11/12-3, 12-5, 1/12-6, 12-7, 11/12-2,

Group size: We can cater for up to 20 students in a research session. However, we only supply 2 x headsets and 2 x laptops for up to 10 students to use. Schools with more than 10 students in the session need to provide laptops or tablets for extra groups. They will  also need to purchase 1 x headset per extra group at the cost of $214. We provide training and notes on their use. Most schools find these invaluable for use in further investigation or teaching students how to find their ‘learning state’.
Cost:
$480 + gst for a single session or $570 with practice session added
Session length:
90120 minutes (180 minutes with practice session)
Space required:
Large presentation area or classroom
Equipment required:
Data projector and large screen TV, proximity to power points
What we provide:
2 x EEG headsets, 2 x  laptops, research stimuli, worksheets.

NSW STAGE 6 Investigating science

FACT or FALLACY?

Fact or Fallacy is strictly for Investigating Science Students.

Fact or Fallacy  Students will conduct a series of mind-based EEG experiments to prove Fact or Fallacy on several common beliefs. A common belief is that lying down helps a person relax and creates ‘Theta’ brainwaves. Another belief is that heavy metal music creates ‘Beta or Gamma’ waves and cannot help a person relax. The session investigates these beliefs using our EEG headsets to see if they fit into the areas of Fact or Fallacy.  We train the students on EEG use.

This investigation is different to the ‘Working Scientifically‘ session in that students don’t design their investigation. All guidance is supplied. For the full session outline, click HERE.

New for schools: Drone Control

Yes, that’s right. From steering wheelchairs and cars to turning on lights to dialing mobile phone numbers with your thoughts … and now this!

In NSW from February, every school incursion for years 7-10 + Biology (term 4) will include one or two students per group nominated to fly our special indoor drone.
Now this isn’t easy and it takes ‘Theta’ or ‘Beta’ control that most struggle with. We’ll admit, we’ve crashed it several times.
It must be flown indoors as if not it will end up in New Zealand, yet the drone has a wire cage surround so that students can catch it easily and safely. It’s safe, fun and fairly impossible to break (we hope).
Only one  or two students per group will have a turn and they’ll need to show some skill at mind control during other activities.
