The Mobile Learning Center and Its Parts
The Cura Oceanus Mobile Learning Center moves the contents of a biology lab, a computer lab, a life sciences lab, a physics lab and a math classroom to the learners’ location. By packing hardware and software into rugged and portable containers, a classroom can be set up in any suitable indoor space in under 30 minutes and learners can rotate through the classroom throughout the day. If required, the team can reconfigure the classroom for a different learning area within an hour. With planning and sufficient transition time, the Mobile Learning Center can provide up to 3 different learning experiences, at different times, of the day in the same space.
Cura Oceanus is building partnerships with organizations, educators and volunteers with experience running STEM education programs. Together with these great people, we will provide sustainable and valuable educational experiences to learners of all ages.
This truck has been pledged to us as the basis for the Mobile Learning Center.
The Cura Oceanus Mobile Learning Center brings STEM learning resources to learners, wherever they are. Our hands-on learning experience encourage learners to think about what they are learning in school and provides them the opportunity to explore practical aspects of STEM. Because of the diversity of demographic backgrounds, we offer several different learning experiences ranging from basic ideas to advanced concepts.
