The AVR Lab, a leading supplier of Augmented and Virtual Reality technology and services announces their partnership with BrainCo, bringing a new STEM entrant to the Australian and New Zealand school system.
As part of our Emerging Technology services, The AVR Lab has become a local distributor for BrainCo an American business at the forefront of STEM research. The BrainCo STEM Kit for schools is based on BrainCo’s Dexus prosthetic hand that won Time Magazine’s Top 100 Inventions of the Year in 2019.
By adding a more human element and by having a bio-medical and life science connections compared to its competitors, the BrainCo STEM Kit hopes to have broader appeal and to augment a schools existing STEM curriculum.
“We want to find more solutions for real world problems and solve critical life issues,” says Joshua Varela, Associate Director of Strategic Partnerships at BrainCo.
“While I was initially interested in BrainCo for its brainwave feedback technology and the wearable EEG technology used in FocusCalm, we really see the relevance of the BrainCo STEM Kit for Australian Schools,” says Danny Gambaro, Director of The AVR Lab. “As a father myself, I can see how the BrainCo STEM Kit can improve critical-thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills.”
