  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  8. "EXTENDING A HCLPF-BASED SEISMIC MARGIN REVIEW TO ANALYZE PLANT DAMAGE STATES AND THE ROLE OF HUMAN FACTORS AND NON-SEISMIC FAILURES"

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    TECHNIQUES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED TO ANALYZE THE 'SEISMIC MARGIN' OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT USING THE HCLPF CONCEPT (HIGH CONFIDENCE OF A LOW PROBABILITY OF FAILURE). STARTING WITH AN EARTHQUAKE LEVEL SHOSEN FOR MARGIN REVIEW, THE TECHNIQUE DETERMINES WHETHER THE PLANT CAN OR CANNOT 'WITHSTAND THE REVIEW-EARTHQUAKE WITHOUT CORE DAMAGE. HERE 'WITHSTAND' MEANS 'WITHSTAND WITH A HIGH CONFIDENCE ...
