Brain Boosters

For years, debate on child education focussed on tailoring programs to suit individuals. This proved futile due to the number of programs required, and the effort to administer them.

 A think tank of Singapore scholars proposed to “reverse engineer a level playing field”. The desired level of school performance would be standardized and students would be boosted to achieve them. This was enabled by a new technology called Parallel Synapse Programming (PSP), whereby mental performance could be amplified to predetermined levels. This was the technology used in what became the Brain Boosters.

The policy for Development Utilizing Mental Boosters was implemented in 2025. Singapore was the pioneer and remains the only country to implement such a policy. School curricula were standardized, and children were required to wear Brain Boosters up to the age of 16. As a result, all kids score 95% for exams. Home tuition was eliminated. It has also been noted that Singaporean kids are “very different”.
