Program Director Dr. Diane Hickey will have an interactive conversation with two recent NSF SBIR program recipients about their experience with the program, why they chose to apply and what it has meant to their company and their future success. The two company representatives are
• Anurupa Ganguly of Prisms (https://www.prismsvr.com/) whose team is creating the new paradigm for math education, learning math through movement, experience, and meaningful discovery. After successful completion of their Phase I NSF SBIR project, they launched their beta test “Pandemic” on the Oculus App Lab as the second educational app out there. https://www.sbir.gov/sbirsearch/detail/1705147
• Kirsten Moisio, of Dissect360, has a passion for teaching dissection at the Cadaver Lab at Northwestern University, and has taken the observation of the competitive nature of her students, combined with reality that every dissection is different, and is using NSF SeedFunding to technically validate, “Anatomy Reimagined in an Educational Tool with Gaming and 3D Models.” If technically successful, the team imagines that this game will revolutionize the teaching of anatomy everywhere – from medical colleges who don’t have the facilities for a cadaver lab, to rural colleges that need exposure to a wider population of samples, to cultures where dissection of humans is considered taboo, as well as a simply competitive game to drive future medical professionals (or armchair docs) to compete and achieve levels of knowledge untenable in a lecture hall or lab. https://seedfund.nsf.gov/awardees/phase-1/details/?company=dissect-360-llc
