Roper Mountain Science Center has earned a Content Provider Honorable Mention Pinnacle Award for the second consecutive year from the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC). The Center’s program entitled Wagons West takes third through sixth grade students on a wagon trail journey to the Oregon Territory. The trek includes an auction where students must bid on necessary items for their trip, and are then responsible for making all decisions during the hour-long journey across the Great Plain, rivers and mountains before arriving in Oregon.
The Pinnacle Award is given annually to organizations that receive outstanding scores on program evaluations submitted by educators and end users. Receiving the award indicates remarkable quality of educational content and exceptional skill in program delivery.
CILC is recognized nationally and internationally as the leader in support services that assist organizations with using videoconferencing and other collaborative technologies.
