Spatial Visualization Skill Development Program
at UC San Diego
Spatial Visualization is a cognitive skill of being able to represent and manipulate 2D and 3D shapes in one’s mind. SV is correlated with high GPAs in math, engineering, and science, and is important for success in 84 careers. BUT Spatial Visualization is not a formal part of K-12 or college curriculum!
To create an engaging way to teach Spatial Visualization skills we have developed a tablet App that allows students improve their skills while working independently.
