On November 1, 2016, intellADAPT, a Boston-based educational technology and Adaptive Learning company, was one of the sponsors of the Massachusetts STEM Summit at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. The intellADAPT booth at the MA STEM Summit presented adaptive learning solutions to increase STEM population amongst high-school and college students.

IntellADAPT, a company funded by National Science Foundation (NSF), SBIR grants, proudly showcased its patented Adaptive 2.0 Learning Technology that uses Big-data Analytics and Brain Computer Interface (EEG headband) to record brain activity of the users to determine their optimal learning strategy. At the intellADAPT booth, visitors received valuable information on how the ground-breaking adaptive learning technology works and how schools and universities can participate in a National Study on the use of Adaptive Learning for STEM Education, funded by the NSF.

The intellADAPT team generated a great deal of interest in the homework substitute aspect of intellADAPT’s Adaptive Resource for the Classroom or ARC. The first Physics ARC is deployed in numerous school systems participating in the national study conducted by intellADAPT.

Dr. Nishikant Sonwalkar, founder and President of intellADAPT engaged with numerous potential partner institutions and companies present at the summit and encouraged them to explore the opportunity of implementing intellADAPT’s adaptive STEM courses by participating in pilot programs offered in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017. He said “There is an acute need for developing STEM competency in schools and colleges to fill the growing unmet need for STEM jobs. We need to prepare next generation of engineers and scientists now to meet the challenge of future demand”. IntellADAPT saw an overwhelming response from visitors and fellow participants that were convinced that they could use intellADAPT’s technology in their STEM programs to enhance learning outcome.

The intellADAPT team would like to give a special thank you to Dana Bienkowski and Lynn Griesemer for organizing this conference and allowing intellADAPT to demonstrate adaptive learning solutions for schools and colleges.
