PATHworks Brings Versus Brain Training to Middle School Sports & STEM Summer Academy
Date:8/7/2015

PATHworks today announced the integration of Versus performance brain training into its Summer Academy curriculum. The announcement from PATHworks Founder & former US Olympian, Erica McLain, comes at the close of Summer Academy’s second session.

Versus helps the students remain calm and focused when they need to, by teaching them to regulate the electrical activity in their brain. The student wears a ‘brain sensing’ headset and when her brain is in the correct state (focused, for example), they are rewarded through feedback in a game on the Versus app.

Simply put, she plays video games with her brainwaves.

“When I first saw Versus in action, I immediately recognized its potential to be a powerful training tool for youth education and development,” said Erica McLain, PATHworks Founder. “I’m excited that our Summer Academy students are experiencing it firsthand. It completely supports our mission of developing students to be smart on the field and mentally tough in the classroom.”

PATHworks Sports & STEM Summer Academy is designed to engage students with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education through sports-based curriculum.

Austin Miller, SenseLabs’ Co-founder and CEO said, “This is such an exciting partnership for us; Versus is poised to make a big impact in education. I still light up every time a student learns that the same training her favorite athlete uses for sports, is going to help her in school too.”

One of the students, 12-year-old Alexandra, said, “The thing that I like about Versus is that it helps your brain by training you to focus more. In class, sometimes I have a hard time focusing, and I like that Versus can help me to get better with my school work and paying attention in class.”
