PRLog - Sep. 11, 2012 - LAKE FOREST, Calif. -- Thousands of children who live near the coast lack transportation to see our planet’s greatest natural wonder, the ocean. Since 2007, the Wyland Foundation has driven their Clean Water Mobile Learning Experience, a 1000 sq.foot exhibit on wheels, to dozens of schools, communities and local events across the U.S. reaching more than 250,000 students.
This month, Wyland’s Clean Water Mobile Learning Experience rolls out of its Orange County headquarters with a new addition to its educational arsenal – a 46-inch multi-touch screen kiosk with gallery showcase software from Horizon Display.
“It’s rewarding to see how advancements in technology can help these kids in a big way,” says Wyland, the renowned artist and conservationist who founded the foundation in 1993.
“The real challenge of teaching children about awareness of any kind is keeping their attention long enough. Our new large touch screen kiosk does just that.”
“This kiosk’s low profile and angled monitor face are a comfortable height for the children who will be interfacing with Wyland’s art and educational content,” says Ryan Miller, Display Solution Specialist for Horizon Display. “Kids today are very comfortable using touch screens which we believe can have a far more stimulating and educational experience than simply watching a video.”
Now, with an array of film, science, hands-on activities and touch technology, this mobile outreach experience is unlike anything on the road today.
