For nearly 50 years, the REVERE Awards have recognized content, basal curricula, supplementary resources and other tools that help teachers teach and learners learn. Sponsored by the AAP PreK-12 Learning Group, products entered into the REVERE Awards are judged by educators and administrators who pick the best products spanning various subjects, age ranges, media and application.
“The REVERE Awards are the pinnacle of all contests recognizing the educational and pedagogical value of education products,” said Sabari Raja, CEO and founder of Nepris. “Being a finalist in the REVERE Awards means that leading U.S. educators have singled Nepris out for being an effective, even exemplary educational resource to expose students to the real world of STEM and the arts.”
With Nepris, teachers access and engage a worldwide marketplace of industry professionals who interact with their students, showing them how they apply classroom learning to real life, or they will mentor students on projects or evaluate student work. The goal is to excite students about careers in science, engineering, technology, the Arts and math.
