Chennai (Tamil Nadu)/Cochin (Kerala)/Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India] Feb 27 (ANI/BusinessWire India): Neeuro launched the 'Brainiest Kid Competition India', its first-ever cognitive skills online competition last October 2019. As a leader in the digital mental health and brain fitness platform, Neeuro has established a reputation for advocating brain training solutions all over the world.
To reinforce the importance of brain training in India, Neeuro invited students between the ages of six to 17-year-old to participate in the competition.
Improving children's cognitive abilities
According to Harvard Health Publishing, cognitive functions are key ingredients to life-time performance. Furthermore, a study from the Economic Times of India suggests that high cognitive ability is correlated by 84 per cent with higher job performance. In fact, it is the most accurate predictor of an employee's success at work.
A game from Neeuro'sMemorie App called Multitask Master was used in the competition. Primarily, the game is designed to help enhance players' mental flexibility and their rate of processing information. By letting students play Multitask Master, Neeuro aimed to show how cognitive flexibility can make them more productive.
Attention, memory, decision making, spatial ability, and cognitive flexibility are some of the key cognitive skills that need to be developed for children to do well, not only in school but also in life.
Overwhelming participation for the Brainiest Kid
Close to four-thousand registered students from more than 24 Indian schools participated in the Brainiest Kid India Competition 2019. As the demand increased after the said launch, the competition period ran for an extended period. From the 45-day initial run, the Brainiest Kid was extended to 118 days (October 3, 2019, to January 31, 2020).
Neeuro's Value-Added Partners (VAPs), Pragati Brain Power, Spini, SMA Abacus, Ignite Genius Minds, Aguray Consultancy Services, and Plaudit Minds showed their support for the success of this pilot competition.
Neeuro will officially be awarding the schools with the "Brainiest School" award (School with the highest combined score of all their students), while the students in each category (Lower-Primary, Upper-Primary, and Secondary) will be awarded the "Brainiest Grandmaster" awards, respectively. The team at Neeuro congratulates the Brainiest Kid Competition India winners listed below: Many schools expressed their experience, praising Neeuro for the way they conducted the event.
