Responding to educator demand for realistic simulators and models that better equip agriculture students with industry-needed skills, Wisconsin-based developer of interactive learning solutions announces the release of several new agriculture training tools
Eau Claire, Wis. (February 3, 2020) – Realityworks, Inc. announces the expansion of its agriculture product line to include new training tools for animal, veterinary and plant science programs. New tools include a Calf Simulator, a Swine Breeder™ artificial insemination (AI) simulator, a Greenhouse Insect Models Kit and Hydroponics Educational Systems. Each learning aid was created to help instructors teach key skills, manage their classrooms and budget, and prepare students for growing careers in the agriculture industry.
“With less students coming to agriculture programs from the farm, and therefore without prior knowledge of agriculture concepts, teachers continue to ask us for simulators and models that bring the agricultural landscape into their classrooms and teach vital skills,” said Jamey McIntosh, Realityworks Product Marketing Manager. “We’re growing our agricultural product line to meet teachers’ needs for quality, hands-on learning aids, and to help skill up the next generation for agriculture careers.”
New additions to Realityworks’ agriculture product line include:
- Calf Simulator, a life-sized simulator students can use to practice esophageal tube feeding, ear tagging, hormone implantation, hormone injection, tail blood drawing and castration
- Swine Breeder artificial insemination simulator, a life-sized female swine simulator students can use to practice proper swine AI and birthing techniques.
- Greenhouse Insect Models Kit, which features realistic models and other resources students can use to learn how to identify common greenhouse insects and the damage they can do to greenhouse plants
- Hydroponics Educational Systems, which include two classroom-friendly designs teachers can use to engage students in agriculture lessons, address STEM concepts and teach relevant, in-demand skills
“We created these new training tools in direct response to educator needs,” said McIntosh. “To hear educators tell us, for instance, how much they could use a training aid to help their students pass AI certifications, then see their excitement over our new Bovine Breeder AI simulator – that really underscores the need for training tools that help increase student skills.”
Realityworks’ new agriculture products were added to a line-up of training tools and simulators focused on bringing realism into the classroom, engaging today’s students and teaching in-demand skills and career exploration. Realityworks continues to look for other product development opportunities within CTE and STEM and in areas with a skills gap to engage today’s students in needed career fields.
