The Game-based Education and Advanced Research Studies (GEARS) Lab, part of the Human Factors and Systems Department at Embry-Riddle in Daytona Beach, FL, focuses on exploring how games and simulation can enhance education and training.

Research efforts focus on using games and simulations to study areas related to education, training, and cognition. Recent efforts address ethics in gaming, training military communication and leadership, developing mathematical models of utility and choice in games, and how tablet-based games (e.g., Minecraft) can be used in middle-school education.
