NSW Year 7-10 STEM

We’re back visiting schools Australia-wide from the start of term 4, 2020

A Mindz Brainplay incursion is the perfect motivational session for schools wanting to build their years 7-10 (NSW stages 4 and 5) focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

We can do small group, class  or whole assembly hall presentations. We only need a data projector, a big screen or monitor and a place for our laptops and we’re ready to go.

While years 7-10 are normally happy watching 8-10 of their classmates act as demonstrators, we can add a 30- 75 minute ‘Mind Control’ session for other students who want to use the equipment. This will let students (up to 25) use the headset to see their brain activity.

We visit schools throughout Metro and Regional Areas. Our lead presenters are either trained teachers or specialist science presenters with experience in education. All presenters have their Working with Children clearance.

How do our incursions work?

We come to you and can stay for one session, a half day or a full day. The benefits are:

  • No buses to organise and no travel time
  • Flat fee – Your school knows the cost
  • Teachers required for supervision only
  • Year based concept sheet and post-incursion activities provided to teachers
  • Full insurance and risk assessment

What happens?
hey –  the students 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. From 2018 they can even fly a drone with their mind. It’s immersive, innovative, motivational education. 
In the real world?

Our EEG headsets are used to help disabled people undertake tasks  such as moving prosthetic limbs or driving their wheelchair independently. Brain control of devices is no longer science fiction, but is here right now. When students see this in action, an entire new world opens up.

Can we evaluate your students?
If required, we can conduct an assessment of the students’ retention and understanding of key concepts. Using their smartphones, tablets or laptops, students enter our ‘room’ in the Socrative App to complete a short 10-minute quiz. A class spreadsheet and individual student reports are then emailed to the teacher.

Education Authorities sometimes treat the spelling of 'Mindz' as spam. This is why we ask for a 2nd non-school email address. Please allow email from us (mindz.com.au) in your school email settings and check your junk/spam box in case our reply has ended up there. We don't share any email addresses with 3rd parties.
This is important. It can be a school number or personal mobile. We don't share it with 3rd parties.
