The Mind Project offers immersive online virtual experiences that capture the imagination. Your students will be sure to see science and math in a new way.
The Mind Project’s (TMP's) goal is to bring cutting edge research to the high school classroom in order to excite students about the application of science and math concepts in real world careers. Students are thrown into the drama of trying to solve real-life scientific mysteries and of embracing state-of-the-art medical advancements.
There are currently three virtual experiences appropriate for middle and high school students. In addition to the captivating virtual experiences that you and your student will experience (Virtual Labs), additional resources are available to you—the teacher—including many online services to support your teaching (Courses/Quizzes), and special privileges and opportunities if you become a TMP "Teacher Associate".
If this is your first time to the TMP website, take some time to experience these modules for yourself. If you decide you'd like to use them with your students, please visit our using teacher resources page.
|In the Stroke Lab you become a radiologist who must diagnose a stroke victim and perform life-saving surgery.||In the Cocaine Lab you become a neurobiologist implanting electrode in a rat's brain and studying the effects of cocaine.||In the Robotics Lab you construct a robot, write scripts to control arms & wheels, and train an AI program to be its "mind."|
If you think there is a chance that you might want to use one of these modules in your classroom, please contact us immediately (email us) so that we can help you decide if the lab is right for you and so that we can give you all the support you need to make it a success with your students.
Our website offers a wide range of services for teachers using our modules. You can create your own online "course" with links to our modules, online quizzes, tracking of student progress and more.
The Mind Project offers online support services for teachers, including an online quiz system, your own course pages, customizable table of contents system, and individualized email support from our education team.
We are always looking for new teachers who would like to partner with us to create the best classroom experience possible. Consider piloting our latest modules and becoming a TMP Teacher Associate with special rights, privileges, and opportunities.
If you have any questions at all about how we might help you in the classroom or how you might help us in achieving our goals, please contact us at our "teacher support" email address.
NOTE: The Mind Project began its K-12 Initiative in 2006 when a 5-year SEPA/NCRR/NIH grant provided support for the development of elaborate virtual labs and virtual medical clinics
