  4. LabAR: An Augmented Reality Learning System for STEM

    SBC: LightUp, Inc.            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a new component of the AR app, a prototype with computer vision and recognition software to present real-world phenomena that are ordinarily not observable in nature. In Phase I, the research team will create a magnetism module would show students the invisible magnetic field all around them and how it interacts with magnetic objects. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study w ...

  5. Greener Plastics with High Heat Tolerance for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Advances in materials and automation are rapidly reshaping the American manufacturing economy, and must be embraced to sustain a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. Additive manufacturing is possibly the fastest growing example of this trend, growing at an astonishing compound annual growth rate of 25.7%. The plastic materials market for additive manufacturing, valued at $700M in 202 ...

  6. Renewable Bioplastics Production

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Current petroleum-derived-plastics contain additives such as phthalates or bisphenolA that are harmful to human health and the environment. Thus, it’s critical to replace such toxic non-biodegradable plastics with biodegradable bioplastics. To meet bioplastics production need, Altex, and Texas A&M University (TAMU) have teamed up to utilize renewable biomass, such as forest residue, agricultural ...

  7. PFAS Analyzer- A fieldable device for the broad-spectrum analysis of PFAS in water, soil, and sediments

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are used in food packaging, as coatings for cloth (e.g. Scotchgard), firefighting foams, electronics, and industrial and automotive components. Being perfluorinated species, they are engineered to breakdown slowly (half-life >92 years in water), and thus persist for very long times. Their high water-solubility makes them especially dangerous, and much like perchlo ...

  8. VR-enhanced Immersive Science Investigations into Biology and Genetics

    SBC: LIGHTHAUS INC            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a prototype of an immersive virtual reality experience for high school students to learn about the scientific processes and the biology of plants. The prototype will be designed to be multi-player where groups of students collaboratively conduct open-ended cross-breeding experiments, record images to export to reports, track and analyze data, and draw conclusions. At the end ...

  9. An Augmented Reality Sandbox for use in Early Elementary STEM Instruction

    SBC: Parametric Studio, Inc.            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a prototype of an augmented reality (AR) sandbox with foundational learning experiences in engineering and computer science for students in kindergarten to grade 2. The prototype will embed puzzle challenges within the AR interface to facilitate experiences that will mirror traditional real-world play-building activities. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study in three class ...

  10. Field-deployable Measurement of Fluorocarbons in Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have been identified as a serious health contaminant in water at levels between 12 and 516 parts per trillion by the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. In 2016, the EPA set a lifetime health advisory of 70 parts per trillion for two PFASs, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS). These compounds come from a variety of so ...
