Special thanks from RE@L to our local newspaper, The St. Paul Pioneer Press, for their recent news article on the donation of MECC memorabilia to The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY.
The Strong Museum recently honored the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium (MECC) by inducting their flagship software product, Oregon Trail™, into their video-gaming Hall of Fame.
Several former MECC employees were instrumental in donating various MECC software products, posters, and promotional materials, all of which captured MECC’s leadership among K12 software publishers during the last two-plus decades of the 20th century.
We are grateful to Pioneer Press technology reporter, Julio Ojeda-Zapata for his fine article, “Oregon Trail Makers Donate Historical Game Memorabilia.” You can read his report by clicking on the link to the left.
The article also includes a brief review of key MECC products, along with several of the fascinating MECC posters from that era.
RE@L is continuing and improving the exemplary K12 software MECC brought to classrooms, kids and teachers around the world.
