The Fluid Interfaces group at the MIT Media Lab is looking for children between 8-12 years old to participate in a new study. We are testing how self-esteem, 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 to solve. You and your child will be asked a few questions before and after the session takes place. The whole activity should 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’re interested or have any questions.

Thank you very much!
