The wearable technology and activities have been co-designed by teachers from three different Phoenix area schools, researchers at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and the School of Arts, Media, and Engineering (ASU), and the Neurodiversity Education Research Center with funding from an NSF CS for All Grant.

It has long been recognized that "one size fits all" instruction does not work for all learners. Some aspects of neurodiversity are often characterized as deficits in learning, but these same characteristics can also be viewed as talents which can be harnessed for STEAM problem-solving. Neurodivergent learners often bring unique strengths to STEAM problem-solving and should be encouraged and supported in their innovative ways of thinking.
