We are proud to announce that Steve Conner in partnership with Loyola University and HEPH ED has been awarded a coveted NIH tech grant to create a video game that teaches immunology to high school students.
Students typically study biology and science by rote learning and lab work. For most students this is boring. Science, explored in a gaming and entertainment environment delivers meaning. This approach also reframes the meaning of failure, which is the primary cause of student’s lack of interest in STEM fields of study.
Over the last 20 years, Steve and Sheila Conner have had a vested interest in helping learners and workers embrace the 4th industrial revolution. The effort can be seen most notably, through workforce development within our ranks, and internships at HEPH ED – FLUID CONTENT’s own STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education platform.
Clinical tests of the engaging NIH sponsored game VR, AR and haptic games will take place in the first quarter of 2020. Stay tuned!
