  1. Fate and Fortune: A Story-Based Algebra Simulator of High Seas Trade

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Fate and Fortune, an online class-wide intervention where grade 8 students learn algebra within a story-based game. Research demonstrates that students who do not succeed in algebra are more likely to eventually drop out of high school. When students begin Algebra I, a lack of conceptually meaning and understanding can be further reinforced by ...

  2. Formulation and testing of an entirely wood-based exterior insulation board for the high-performance building market

    SBC: GO Lab Inc.            Topic: 17NCER6B

    The goal of this project is the formulation a rigid, insulating, low-density wood composite, with physical and thermal properties comparable to fossil fuel derived foams. _x000D_ _x000D_ To achieve energy conservation standards mandated by certification agencies such as Passive House and LEED, high performance buildings require multiple shells of insulation – an inner shell that contains electri ...

  3. Densely Connected Neural Networks for Remote Sensing

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: NGA181010

    The objective of this project is to design a software architecture based on densely-connected neural network to perform automatic targetsegmentation and recognition using training datasets of limited size (low-shot). Deep learning architectures have proved to be extremelyeffective at object detection and recognition, but such capability comes at the cost of having large labeled datasets. Such data ...

  4. Organophosphate Degrading Enzymes

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Agve BioSystems in collaboration with Carl A. Batt propose to develop decon-nanoparticles which will leverage ongoing opportunities in enzyme engineering and the fabrication of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles. Enhanced performance will be engineered into the system to improve the catalytic degradation of chemical agents. Through an iterative process optimizing the particles and the enzyme ...

  8. Conundrum: A Project to Computerize the Comprehensive

    SBC: The Evans Associates            Topic: N/A

    CSMP is an exciting K-6 math program, designated as an "exemplary educational program that works¿ by the U.S. Department of Education, which funded its development, evaluation, and dissemination. Its spiral, problem solving approach uses picture languages, abaci, and technically challenging games. Simple problems subtly introduce sophisticated concepts. While class and teacher-student intera ...

  9. Novel Field Deployable Electrochemical Sensor for the Detection and Long-Term Monitoring of Pollutants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants of groundwater in the country. When released in the subsurface, they tend to persist below the water table, and it can take decades or centuries before slow-moving groundwater completely dissolves accumulations of chlorinated solvent product. Analytical methods currently available for monitoring these compounds require extensive ...

  10. Low Cost Heavy Metals Removal from Hazardous Wastewaters

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Heavy metal species mobilized and released into the environment by technological activities tend to persist indefinitely, circulating and eventually accumulating throughout the food chain, posing a serious threat to the environment, animals, and humans. Typical industrial metal-containing discharges can be considered as point-source emissions, which in turn offer the possibility of feasible remed ...
