The Mind Project was developed by Illinois State University.

"One of the primary commitments of The Mind Project is the development of interactive, research-oriented curriculum materials that provide students with a challenging yet accessible introduction to the cognitive sciences (the scientific study of the mind and brain).

A primary emphasis of many of our modules is to go beyond simply giving students "facts" that researchers have learned about the mind/brain, and to give them interactive experiences that offer an insight into what it is like to do cognitive science research, using a wide range of methodologies. While originally created for use in Freshman and Sophomore college courses, many of these materials are accessible to middle school and high school students as well."
