Our friends at the Franklin Area School District and NoRILLA are partnering to bring creativity to the classroom! Last year, the McElhattan Foundation funded the implementation of NoRILLA in one elementary school in Franklin. NoRILLA is a mixed-reality system that includes a shaking table, a friendly cartoon gorilla, and an intelligent tutoring system. We can't wait to see these Franklin students explore this new technology!
