Lumosity has turned breakthroughs in neuroscience research into fun, effective games for stimulating your brain and improving skills such as attention, memory, and problem solving. Now, through the Lumosity Education Access Program(LEAP), the company provides free Lumosity accounts for educators to use with their students.

Educators can apply for free memberships for their students in exchange for providing feedback on the use and effectiveness of Lumosity among their students. Depending on the length of time and number of students that are participating, this grant can be worth up to $3,000, Lumosity says.

In a study involving 93 middle school students from an Oregon public school, students who completed Lumosity training improved twice as much as the control group average in measures of math and reading achievement, according to the company.

Also can be used by adults.  I've use it myself.
