NTC Claremore presents 3rd annual EAST Night Out

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

The new Claremore Museum of History also had an area for patrons to learn about some of the town’s history.
“This program has really helped the history museum get going,” said Freeman.
Recently, students received the 2012 EAST Founder’s Award of Excellence for sophistication and innovation in the partnership with the museum.
The EAST class has been working with the historical society for over a year, helping acquire the building, create exhibits and produce marketing tools.  
A major contribution has been the idea to add a technological focus to the project.
Students collaborated with an internet start-up company called Yapanda.
The Tulsa-based company allowed the class to learn the technology and create avatars for a tablet computer software that will help guide visitors through the museum.
“EAST has been an important marquee.  We help the community and the community helps us,” said Reimer.
