NTC Claremore presents 3rd annual EAST Night Out

CLAREMORE — Through the Environmental and Spatial Technology program, (EAST) students use state of the art computer hardware and software to engage in a project-based approach to problem solving. 

Since 2010 the program has brought ideas developed by students of NTC to the public.  From different fundraising events to organizations, the students work independently and in teams to solve real world problems in their community and beyond.
“EAST is very unique in that the students are the teachers,” said NTC Representative Stephani Freeman.  “They use the latest in technology and take it upon themselves to learn as much as they can about certain issues and the outcomes.”
Assistant Campus Director Rick Reimer has been with NTC for over 25 years and helped bring the new campus to Claremore four years ago.
In 2006 the superintendent for the pryor campus asked Reimer to find some new and upcoming programs that could eventually be used for the school.
Reimer researched and found the EAST program, which was being used at the time in Arkansas and helped bring it to Oklahoma.
“It was very exciting because the program was the first of its kind in the state of Oklahoma,” said Reimer.  “Since then it’s been a marquee in which we help the community and the community helps us.”
EAST provides students with technical and pedagogical training, along with educational research in 3-D modeling, engineering design, surveying and mapping, programming, web page design, digital photography, video editing and more.
During EAST Night Out, students ran booths presenting relative community projects, including an effort to revive Claremore’s music venue the Tree, as well as a promotion for a Claremore High School Art Festival.
One booth displayed a one of a kind engine-powered four-foot wide airplane, built entirely from the ground up.  
The plane which can reach speeds up to 100 mph, will be operated during Oklahoma State University’s Speedfest in April.
