  1. 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 ...

  2. Dynamical Network Models for Mission Risk Assessment of Emergency Response Systems

    SBC: Achilles Heel Technologies, LLC            Topic: HSB0191007

    The integration of new cyber technologies in emergency response systems can allow profound improvements in system performance, but also expose the systems to systemic security and privacy risks.Thus, there is a critical need for design-time risk-assessment tools for emergency response systems, which allow evaluation and mitigation of threat impacts across their heterogeneous cyber and physical com ...

  3. Bilayer Nanofibers as Wearable Sensors for Detecting Fentanyl Compounds

    SBC: Vaporsens, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old, with fentanyl claiming more lives than any other drug. Alarmingly, the problem is increasing, with fentanyl overdoses claiming nearly twice as many lives in 2016 compared to 2015. In addition to users, first responders are at risk for exposure to fentanyl as they perform their duties. Fentanyl is extremely dangerous ...

  4. The Training, Education, and Apprenticeship Program Outcomes Toolkit (TEAPOT)

    SBC: IMPACT LAB, LLC, THE            Topic: 91990019R0016

    Researchers will conduct a pilot study with a socio-economically and diverse sample of at least 500 high school students who will test the prototype ROI tool. The researchers will examine the feasibility and usability of the prototype, whether ROI information increases search and discovery for educational opportunities; whether having ROI information increases the likelihood of click-through rates ...

  6. DNA Profiles from Single FIngerprints

    SBC: Independent Forensics of Illinois, LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The goal of this project is to develop a validated, commercial quality reagent kit for the reliable collection of fingerprints (i.e., latent ridge impressions) that would subsequently be used for both comparison and DNA profiling. The kit would provide all required materials, reagents, solutions and would include a detailed protocol describing the steps to (i) identify latent ridge impressions (al ...

  8. CURB CLIMBING WHEELCHAIR DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Triodyne Inc            Topic: N/A

    SIDEWALK RAMPS, ADOPTED FOR THE SAFETY AND CONVENIENCE OF WHEELCHAIR BOUND CITIZENS, HAVE EXHIBITED A NUMBER OF SHORTCOMINGS. MILLIONS OF DOLLARS HAVE BEEN SPENT, AND WILLCONTINUE TO BE SPENT, FOR THE CONVERSION OF CURBS INTO RAMPSA LESS THAN SATISFACTORY SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM. A MORE FEASIBLE APPROACH TO ALTERING THE MILLIONS OF CURBS IS THE ADDITION OF CURB CLIMBING CAPABILITIES TO THE FIFTY T ...
