To The Stars Through Competition
Interstellar is a live, online academic competition for every Grade and Course. It creates a competitive environment where everyone is included, students have an incentive to work together for the sake of their team's success – to lift each other up, not pull each other down.
This innovative approach to education reform, combining game mechanics with intellectual rigor, provides a unique opportunity for students to develop both poise in traditional test taking scenarios and confidence in their ability to compete successfully, good-naturedly, in any environment.
In the fall of 2013, in conjunction with the Mathematical Association of America, Interstellar launched Math Madness. 500 high schools and 10,000+ students from across the country participated in a season of mathematics competition followed by a bracket-style challenge just like the NCAA Basketball March Madness Tournament.
If relationships are critical to the success of a business, then Railsware is assured of distinctive status in the software engineering arena long into the future. I have now been working with this firm for almost two years on a project of considerable scope and challenge. From the very beginning the members of the unit assigned to me have shown incredible discipline, enthusiasm and commitment.
They have treated my application as if it were their own, innovating with the zeal of an entrepreneur balanced by the restraint of a seasoned strategist.
Railsware has helped scope the Interstellar product and worked on the prototype to release the first working version. After Interstellar has been tested by its first users, our team started working on the full verison of the app and moved through production to deployment and support.
Railsware has handled front-end and back-end development for Interstellar, as well as graphical and UI design.
