Grades K-6

ASPECT: Advancing Science Performance with Experimental Computer Technologies is a three year grant that looks at the possible impact of teaching grade school students Buoyancy, Molecular Bonding, and Magnetism using Haptic devices connected to a computer simulation built in Unity. This video explains the history of the project and gives a brief overview of the simulations introduced to students, Buoyancy and Molecular Bonding in year one and two. The team discusses the lessons learned and accomplishments as well as challenges.

The video then focuses on the year three simulation, Magnetism. The team introduces the simulation and we see students using the simulation during the final year pilot testing. 

Finally the research team gives their final thoughts on the project and the potential for future research for the use of Haptic Devices in elementary science classrooms.
