The Fluid Interfaces group at the MIT Media Lab is looking for children ages 8-12 to participate in a new study. We are testing how self-esteem, creativity, motivation, and performance on certain tasks might be improved by using a wearable device that detects brain activity and informs the user about it. 

Your child will be given a set of math and reading problems of different difficulty levels. You and your child will be asked a few questions before and after the session takes place. You will be invited to the lab together with your child to participate in the study which will take 45-60 minutes. 

You will receive a $15 Amazon gift card as a thank-you for your participation.

Please email Nataliya Kosmyna ( if you are interested or have any questions.

Feel free to contact us even if you and your child have already participated in this study. 

Thank you very much!
