Optimisation of Capabilities to Engage and Acquire, using neuroscientific methods

A program to teach neuroscience with the aim to improve learning, concentration emotion regulation.

Children have little exposure to understanding how attention can be ‘controlled’ to facilitate their learning. This program, validated by researchers in cognitive science, does so with a structured approach guided by neuroscientific research.

Program aims

We are a team of scientists and teachers who are passionate about early education. We promote the idea that children who learn about human behavior and the brain – memory, emotions, and attention – can become even better learners, and understand how to regulate stress, emotions, attention that can affect memory and learning.


Propose a playful tools to teach neuroscience for young mind: games, comics, tale, activities. Empower children to be better learners through the instruction and application of neuroscience


To help to put new cognitive science knowledge in action by creating an integrated community between scientists, teachers, learners to foster interdisciplinary conversations and learning


For children (the world’s future) to better understand human thought and behavior so that they can make informed decisions, regulate their emotions, and learn to handle stressful and challenging situations


A science education that is validated through rounds of implementation, research, and improvement between scientists and primary schools – team effort between teachers and researchers
