BENEFITING: GEORGE GREENSTEIN INSTITUTE INC
It’s hard to pay attention today.
Especially for our youth.
And we can’t just blame technology for habits that seem like addictions.
Sometimes, it’s just a matter of a developing brain.
Welcome to the Inventio!Brains Prize!
In 2015 GGI is raising funds to incentivize innovative brain/mind research conducted by college age and college bound youth in the US and we need your help.
Our Visionary Goal is 10K / Our 2015 Summer Goal: $2500 +
The Inventio!Brains Prize is a cash award + a visit to the Zak Lab at the Center for Neuroeconomic Studies to a collaborative team of young artists, scientists and designers.
Here's the skinny:
The competition launches Fall 2015 and ends by December 2015
The Target Themes of Research Design:
Attention, Engagement and Screen Culture
Who's Eligible: Winning "proof of concept" research must be designed and conducted by collaborative teams of undergrads, grads or graduating seniors majoring in neuroscience, architecture, arts and technology under the aegis of a mentor from a US college, university or high school lab or studo.
Research Designs and Projects will be juried by select members from the GGI advisory board along with members of the "screen" community.
Your donation will go directly into the cash fund to be awarded Fall 2015.
Cash dollars pay for lab time, material and tech use, volunteer subjects and travel to the Center for NeuroEconomics lab run by Dr Paul Zak at the Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California.
