Numerade aims to relieve those impacted by the widening education achievement gap due to COVID-19 by providing free educational resources to students and educators from the most in-need schools

Press Release updated: Aug 26, 2020 11:00 EDT


Numerade — a leading education platform founded with the mission to provide equitable access to high-quality STEM instruction — today announced it is offering students and educators from Title I schools unlimited free access to their platform during COVID-19 school closures. Students at Title I schools are at higher risk of falling behind during this period of remote and hybrid learning. Numerade hopes to diminish the impact of school closures by supplementing students’ education with AI virtual tutoring utilizing the world’s largest library of educational STEM lesson videos (800,000+).

With Numerade, students receive AI virtual tutoring in the form of engaging video lessons designed to make study time more effective. Working with 20,000+ partner educators including many professors and PhDs from top colleges, Numerade has developed a comprehensive library of lesson videos that help students learn, understand and solve any problem they come across. Using A.I, Numerade is able to surface the correct video for each student’s needs, presenting them with the exact lesson that fits their personal learning journey at every step. Numerade also offers full-length courses that replicate an entire semester of content in specific subjects including SAT test prep.

For educators, Numerade can be used during distance learning to host asynchronous “virtual class.” Relying on only live lessons for distance learning is not ideal, as scheduling and access to technology is not consistent for all students. This is an acute issue among Title I students. Numerade’s “Office Hour” tool allows educators to record daily lessons and assign them to their class to be watched when convenient. Using the platform, educators can track students as they watch lessons, conduct video Q&A with their class, and assign additional videos from Numerade’s library of lessons — saving time and effort.

“We are proud to provide the necessary support for students who face the steepest uphill battle navigating school closures,” said Nhon Ma, CEO and co-founder of Numerade. “The COVID slide is disproportionately impacting lower-income households. It is our hope that through the use of Numerade, students can fill in the holes in their education and excel well beyond the expectation of their zip code.”

The COVID slide is real. Projections made by NWEA.org predict that students could lose anywhere from half to all of their mathematical academic growth from the last year, compared to normal student growth.[1] By some estimates this contraction in knowledge is impacting lower-income students worst. According to McKinsey & Company research, COVID will widen the already gaping achievement gap in American education by 15%-20% for low-income students.[2]  

Press as well as parents, educators and students are encouraged to email James Patrick at James@numerade.com to learn more and gain free access.

About G-SHOCK

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com

Following a successful Kickstarter release, the highly anticipated Quantum Q-Server and Q-Clients have been well received by its backers.

Press Release updated: Nov 24, 2020 07:16 PST


Quantum Integration, following a successful Kickstarter campaign for its complete Internet of Things (IoT) platform for hobby enthusiasts, has announced that its Quantum IoT platform has been well received by early supporters. Earning praise for its ease of use, versatility and the control it provides users without coding knowledge, the Quantum IoT platform is ideal for those with the passion to create wireless projects.

The Quantum IoT platform was designed from the ground up for novices and experts alike to give users the freedom and control to create without learning complex coding languages. “I’ve purchased a few different Arduino and Raspberry Pi kits during the last year for my own learning and for teaching my kids how to be builders and creators,” according to John A., in a recent testimonial. “While each platform has different strengths and weaknesses, the Quantum Q-Server and Q-Clients are great because they allow you to start building projects in less than an hour with no coding required and no need to install complex development tools.”

“But what really makes the Quantum platform unique is that these are Internet-enabled and wireless-enabled projects. This not only allows your Q-Clients to communicate wirelessly with each other, but you can also control and interact with the Q-Clients through your web browser.” This means users have the potential to develop a powerful IoT network, controlling things like remote temperature sensors, automated and smart home projects, and even robots.

He goes on to add, “While it is possible to accomplish similar results with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, it would take weeks or months to learn the skills and write the code to accomplish the same thing on these other platforms that can be done in minutes or hours on the Quantum platform.” With the Quantum IoT platform, users can get to building quicker than ever before, developing their own automations, firmware, and apps.
