SIG-Blocks: Towards Interactive STEM Learning Using Sensor-Integrated Geometric Blocks
NSF Award #: 1109270
This NSF-funded project developed a novel tangible game interface, called SIG-Blocks. SIG-Blocks are interactive creation blocks equipped with motion sensors and wireless communication module for a broad range of clinical, educational, and research applications. The computerized games utilizing the SIG-Blocks as game control are called TAG-Games. Several types of TAG-Games were developed for cognitive assessment and tested on children (age: 4-8) and adults (age: 18-30). We are currently testing the developed technology on individuals with mild traumatic brain injuries for automated cognitive assessment and rehabilitation.
