The National Science Center Brings Rainforests to Classrooms
The National Science Center selects the award-winning RCampus platform for their unique educational effort to bring the science of rainforests to 6th – 8th grade teachers.
Irvine, CA: Reazon Systems, Inc., a leading provider of web-based educational technologies, has been selected by the National Science Center (NSC) to make the Discovery Academy Rainforest Project available to teachers and students across the nation.
Through this effort, the Discovery Academy Rainforest Project will be housed at a specially enhanced RCampus environment, allowing NSC to facilitate the management and promotion of its course modules more effectively. Teachers who participate in this project will gain access to standards-based course materials designed by NSC at http://NSC.RCampus.com. RCampus will also facilitate the unique assessment needs of NSC for evaluating the effectiveness of its modules as well as tracking students’ performance.
“It has been a privilege to be selected by the National Science Center for advancing its Rainforest Project to a number of classrooms around the U.S.,” said Ramesh Sabetiashraf, the creator of RCampus. “NSC recognized the extent of RCampus capabilities and identified it as the best vehicle for achieving its mission to bring STEM education to classrooms. We look forward to a continuing alliance and growing relationship with NSC as it extends its digital campus through RCampus.”
“Our efforts to bring our course materials to a broad national audience with various demographics has been a substantial undertaking,” said Cheryl Wynn, Program Manager of the Discovery Academy Rainforest Project at The National Science Center. “It has also come with its unique technology needs and challenges. After testing RCampus for a few months, we found it to be the ideal environment with the necessary tools to meet our needs. The RCampus team has been very responsive in helping us create an online presence for our Rainforest Project and making our program easily accessible to our participants. Our goal is to be the leading K-12 courseware provider in various science, technology, engineering and math subjects as we utilize more features of the RCampus environment. Discovery Academy: R.A.I.N. targets 6 – 8th grade middle schoolers, in particular.”
