Since September 2013, Battle High School Family & Consumer Sciences Teacher Amanda Klenke has used Realityworks’ RealCare® Baby infant simulators to provide her Child Development 1 & 2 students with authentic, hands-on learning experiences as they discuss human development. As a result, Klenke’s 14- to 18-year-old students leave the classroom more prepared for children in the future and for careers related to child care.
“The Babies have become so much more than just a project for these students,” said Klenke, who has 11 RealCare Baby 3 infant simulators and one RealCare™ Pregnancy Profile Simulator. “They have really become a great discussion piece for choosing to parent or building their resumes for jobs.”
