ETIN member Cogent Education also took the prize at the 2015 competition. "We were once again thrilled with the response from science teachers at FETC. They love our new blended concept for chemistry and our new Interactive Case Studies for biology,” said Tyler Gerhart Wood, president & CMO of Cogent. “The show was one of the best for us, as there was a true focus on STEM.”
