  1. Commercializing the Effective K-3 Assessment to Instruction (A2i) Intervention to Reduce Cost and to Scale Access to the Benefit of More Students

    SBC: Learning Ovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Students who fail to achieve proficient levels of literacy are at increased risk for grade retention, referral to special education, and dropping out of high school. The kindergarten through 3rd grade years are particularly important for students to gain a strong foundation in reading as those who continue to struggle with reading are significantly less likely to achieve reading proficien ...

  3. Green Materials for Doubling the Life of Drinking Water Pipeline

    SBC: HJ3 Composite Technologies, LLC            Topic: B

    Of the18,000 miles of pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) within the drinking water transmission infrastructure laid between 1945 and 1996 in the United States, almost one-half, or 8,600 miles of pipe, is considered to be end-of-life infrastructure, awaiting funding for replacement. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave the United States a grade of D for its drinking water inf ...

  5. Project PREPARE: Preparing preschoolers and kindergartners who are deaf to learn to read by teaching them early critical service words typically visually and linguistically inaccessible to them through a computer-based instruction product

    SBC: HOPE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Children with significant hearing loss continually exhibit low reading levels, due in part to the difficulty they face upon entering school of understanding basal reading vocabulary, especially early critical “service words.” Service words are those words that cannot be learned through the use of pictures or objects (e.g., apple) but that constitute up to 75% of all words used in basal readers ...

  6. Development of a Nemeth Math to Latex Backtranslator System

    SBC: Logical Software Solutions            Topic: N/A

    The project extends and enhances the prototype developed in Phase 1 to obtain a reliable, robust, and complete software environment for backtranslating mathematical documents (containing mathematical expressions coded in Nemeth Math code and regular text coded in ASCII Grade 2 Braille) to Latex. The project is conducting research on: (1) automatic detection and recovery from errors in the Math d ...

  7. Monitoring Groundwater Contaminants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants in the subsurface, threatening the quality of groundwater at aquifers. Existing technologies for monitoring these contaminants require expensive, labor-intensive methods of sample collection and analysis. The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a low-cost, compact, reliable, automated, unattended, and long-term mo ...

  8. Cement-Polymer Composits from Recycled Polymer for Construdction Applications

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Conventional cement based construction materials such as stucco and concrete are prone to cracking with poor thermal insulation, and are very permeable to water. Repair of deteriorated cement based structures is a major problem, and in United States alone repair cost is estimated to be over $100 billion range. Commercial stuccos are susceptible to cracking under the influenced of repeated fluctu ...

  9. Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Aptmer-Magnetic Bead Sensor for Bioterrorism Detection in Water

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Some bioterrorism agents cause disease at very low infective doses and their presence can be masked by the environment. Therefore, ultrasensitive detection is required for homeland defense applications. In this Phase I research project, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple DNA aptamers made by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX) proce ...

  10. Development of a Lightweight Adjustable, Modular Pediatric Wheelchair

    SBC: THREE RIVERS HOLDINGS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, the project designed and constructed a prototype tilt-in-space wheelchair called the PALM (pediatric, adjustable, lighweight, and modular) that is specifically designed to meet pediatric needs. The goals of the Phase II project include: (1) to further refine the design of the PALM, (2) verifty functionality of the prototype through end-user testing and evalution on an Activities of D ...
