Technology and creativity help reach more students.

Houston-based Whiteboard Labs, LLC and Law Focused Education Inc. (LFEI), an Austin-based not-for-profit, announced today the release of a new game to add to the collection already available via the LFEI web site, http://www.texaslre.org. The new game, called the Constitution Relay, will allow students to analyze the documents and events that influenced the creation of the U.S. Constitution in a fun and interactive way.

The Houston web design and application development company has been LFEI's web solutions provider for over three years. It all started with the launch of a new online presence for LFEI back in 2002. Since then, Whiteboard Labs and LFEI have continued to work together to add administrative features and other dynamic content to the site. Most recently, the focus has turned to the creation of Web-based educational games that LFEI makes available to teachers and students via the http://www.texaslre.org site.

These games are valuable tools for teachers in the social sciences area and include titles like: Branches of the Federal Government, Preamble Scramble, Declaration Clarification, Pick Twelve-Jury selection, Pledge of Allegiance, Texas Pledge of Allegiance, and the Federalist/Anti-Federalist Game. The entire collection of educational games is available under the Student Outreach section of the site at: http://www.texaslre.org/studentoutreach.html

"Through our partnership with Whiteboard Labs, LFEI has been able to provide the teachers of Texas with access to information about our programs and numerous activities and curriculum that can be shared with students in the classroom. The Web site developed for us by Whiteboard Labs has been an invaluable tool for bringing teachers, students, and Law-Related Education together," commented Jan Miller, Executive Director of LFEI.
