Case Study: Sequoia Park Zoo
Samsung School Technology Connects
Kids and Parents with Nature
Customer Need
Surrounded by 70 acres of
picturesque redwoods in northern
California, Sequoia Park Zoo wanted
to educate and better connect
students with the regional wildlife and
water ecosystem. In developing the
Watershed Heroes exhibit focused on
otters, salmon and eagles, the zoo
sought to leverage mobile computing
and digital display technologies
to create an immersive learning
experience and further its educational
mission.
Samsung Solution
Sequoia Park Zoo partnered with
the local Humboldt County Office
of Education (HCOE) to implement
an educational program using the
Samsung School learning suite,
which combines Galaxy tablets and
interactive classroom displays. The
Samsung tablets enable students to
research and explore the ecosystem
around the zoo. In the Learning
Lab, Samsung School creates an
interactive, participatory environment
for students to learn and share their
work on the displays.
Results
Sequoia Park Zoo has built a
foundation for a new interactive
learning environment powered by
Samsung School. The zoo is excited
by the possibilities the technology
provides to create unique learning
experiences, which are resonating not
only with young students who have
grown up using smartphones and
tablets, but also with adult visitors.
The early success of the Sequoia Park
Zoo initiative has already led other
zoos, schools and libraries to consider
the project as a next-generation
interactive learning model.
Overview
2
Founded in 1907, the Sequoia
Park Zoo is California’s oldest zoo.
Uniquely situated nearby old-
growth redwood forests, trails and
waterways in northern California, the
zoo inspires conservation by creating
intimate connections between
visitors, animals and the surrounding
nature.
Over several decades, the zoo has
transformed from exhibits featuring
caged animals to an interactive
setting that educates visitors about
wildlife, conservation and science.
Its new settings and mission have
earned zoo accreditation by the
Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
As part of its transformation, Sequoia
Park Zoo built the Watershed Heroes
exhibit designed to feature river
otters, salmon and bald eagles in
their natural element. The exhibit
includes a learning lab that provides
an inside view of the salmon pool
and eagle habitat, as well as the
opportunity to study water chemistry
and other aspects of watershed
science. Visitors can observe the
animals in their natural environment.
This area will also be used to tell
stories about the intricate relationship
between salmon and humans, past
and present.
Sequoia Park Zoo officials wanted
to create an immersive learning
experience where kids could learn
about the ecosystem around them.
Few other zoos around the country
are surrounded by such a rich
environment, from 100-year-old
redwood trees to rivers and streams
full of salmon and otters. They saw
this as an opportunity for students
and visitors to use technology to
discover the beauty of the zoo and
the environment around it.
“We needed mobile technology that
would allow children to be untethered
from wires and desks, and take the
technology outside to learn about the
environment around us,” says Amber
Neilson, education and operations
supervisor at Sequoia Park Zoo.
“We wanted learners to be able to
take pictures, collect samples and
create presentations to share with
other students.”
Neilson and her colleagues explored
possibilities with Dr. Garry Eagles,
Humboldt County Superintendent
of Schools, whose office serves the
needs of 31 rural school districts and
18,000 students.
Eagles, likewise, envisioned a
learning environment where students
could learn outside the classroom,
enabling the zoo’s education staff
to teach and bring excitement
to learning.
Together they set out to equip the
learning center with tablets for
students and educators to learn
more about the salmon, otter and
eagle exhibits. Colby Smart, HCOE
e-learning specialist, was assigned to
research, purchase and set up
the new technology.
“Our goal was to create an
environment that expanded the
classroom experience beyond the
walls of our schools,” says Smart.
“This included traditional classes,
afterschool programs or special
clubs. Our belief is that learning
can also happen outside of the
classroom.”
However, Smart knew he would need
more than tablets and classroom
displays to do the job. “From my
experience, one of the biggest
challenges that educators face when
implementing technology in the
classroom is device management.
We needed a solution that would
help us control how the tablets were
used and make it easy for the zoo’s
staff to conduct classroom programs
in the learning center.”
The Customer Need:
Enable Immersive Learning Experiences
High definition displays featuring
Samsung’s system-on-chip
processor, eliminating need for
external media player. Select
models feature built-in Wi-Fi.
Smart Signage Displays
Broad portfolio of smart commercial
displays from 10” to 105”, featuring
energy efficient LED backlighting
technology.

After reviewing a number of solutions,
Sequoia Park Zoo and the Humboldt
County Office of Education chose
to deploy the Samsung School
interactive learning suite in the learning
center. The solution was introduced
by the Ray Morgan Company, who
has previously deployed Samsung
School in numerous traditional school
settings.
The Samsung School interactive
learning suite is a fully integrated one-
to-one learning solution that combines
Samsung Galaxy tablets, large-
format classroom displays and other
technology with powerful, interactive
management software to create a
student-centric learning environment.
The solution includes classroom
management tools such as screen
sharing, student screen monitoring
and device control.
The Samsung Galaxy tablets enable
students at the learning center to
venture into the park and surrounding
forest to take pictures and research
animals and plants for presentations
that are then shared with classmates
back in the learning lab. Using
Samsung School, the instructor can
wirelessly mirror his or her tablet’s
screen to the large interactive display
to introduce new concepts, or
assign a student as the presenter to
showcase their group’s research. The
screen monitoring feature allows the
teacher to ensure students are staying
on task, while instant quizzes and
polls can be used to quickly gauge
understanding.
“The Samsung School with the Galaxy
tablets together really caught my eye,”
Colby says. “We researched several
tablets out in the market. However,
they lacked the cohesive classroom
management capabilities we needed.
Samsung School, with the in-class
management features, together with
the Samsung displays and Galaxy
tablets, was exactly what we were
looking for.”
The Watershed Heroes learning
lab features a 65-inch Samsung
display with a touch overlay for
use in classroom presentations
and interactive demonstrations.
Additional 40-inch displays are used
to dynamically present information
on the exhibit. For example, one
display is used next to the bald eagle
enclosure to show live video feeds
from a webcam perched above a large
eagle nest. For the first time, students
can view the nesting and parenting
routines of a local pair of bald eagles.
The Solution:
Zoo Unleashes Samsung School with Tablets
and Displays

The Results:
Interactive Learning Center Sets Benchmark for Zoos Nationwide
The interactive learning environment
powered by Samsung School has
enabled Sequoia Park Zoo to create
unique learning programs that motivate
students and others to learn more
about the region’s wildlife and fragile
ecosystem.
“We’re receiving great feedback from
other educators, kids and parents,”
says Sequoia Zoo Manager Gretchen
Ziegler. “With the Samsung tablets, we
can take students out to the Redwood
Forest behind the zoo to collect data
and beam it back to the learning
center. They can build reports about
the size of trees they see on their walks
or record details from the streams.
There’s so much bio diversity around
us. And with the Samsung technology,
the sky is the limit with what we can
do.”
As others heard about the Sequoia
Samsung School solution, zoos,
schools and libraries expressed
interest in benchmarking the exhibit
to create technology-enabled learning
environments that are immersive and
engaging. The Association of Zoos
and Aquariums is also looking at the
program’s potential across other zoos.
“We want to become a trailblazer for
other zoos and schools,” says Deborah
Claesgens, executive director of the
Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation. “We’re
receiving overwhelming feedback from
the community, asking to help be a
part of what’s happening here. That’s
an indication that we’re on the right
track.”
Another sign that Sequoia Park Zoo
and Samsung are on the right track
is the level of interest from adults.
During a recent event, Claesgens and
Ziegler gathered feedback from people
leaving the learning lab. And what they
found surprised them. “More than half
the adults in the Learning Lab were
participating in the activity, even though
it was developed for kids. And teachers
from the nearby elementary school are
now integrating the learning center into
their lesson plans,” Claesgens says.

Samsung School Technology Connects Kids and Parents with Nature at Sequoia Park Zoo

  • 1. Case Study: Sequoia Park Zoo Samsung School Technology Connects Kids and Parents with Nature Customer Need Surrounded by 70 acres of picturesque redwoods in northern California, Sequoia Park Zoo wanted to educate and better connect students with the regional wildlife and water ecosystem. In developing the Watershed Heroes exhibit focused on otters, salmon and eagles, the zoo sought to leverage mobile computing and digital display technologies to create an immersive learning experience and further its educational mission. Samsung Solution Sequoia Park Zoo partnered with the local Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE) to implement an educational program using the Samsung School learning suite, which combines Galaxy tablets and interactive classroom displays. The Samsung tablets enable students to research and explore the ecosystem around the zoo. In the Learning Lab, Samsung School creates an interactive, participatory environment for students to learn and share their work on the displays. Results Sequoia Park Zoo has built a foundation for a new interactive learning environment powered by Samsung School. The zoo is excited by the possibilities the technology provides to create unique learning experiences, which are resonating not only with young students who have grown up using smartphones and tablets, but also with adult visitors. The early success of the Sequoia Park Zoo initiative has already led other zoos, schools and libraries to consider the project as a next-generation interactive learning model. Overview
  • 2. 2 Founded in 1907, the Sequoia Park Zoo is California’s oldest zoo. Uniquely situated nearby old- growth redwood forests, trails and waterways in northern California, the zoo inspires conservation by creating intimate connections between visitors, animals and the surrounding nature. Over several decades, the zoo has transformed from exhibits featuring caged animals to an interactive setting that educates visitors about wildlife, conservation and science. Its new settings and mission have earned zoo accreditation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. As part of its transformation, Sequoia Park Zoo built the Watershed Heroes exhibit designed to feature river otters, salmon and bald eagles in their natural element. The exhibit includes a learning lab that provides an inside view of the salmon pool and eagle habitat, as well as the opportunity to study water chemistry and other aspects of watershed science. Visitors can observe the animals in their natural environment. This area will also be used to tell stories about the intricate relationship between salmon and humans, past and present. Sequoia Park Zoo officials wanted to create an immersive learning experience where kids could learn about the ecosystem around them. Few other zoos around the country are surrounded by such a rich environment, from 100-year-old redwood trees to rivers and streams full of salmon and otters. They saw this as an opportunity for students and visitors to use technology to discover the beauty of the zoo and the environment around it. “We needed mobile technology that would allow children to be untethered from wires and desks, and take the technology outside to learn about the environment around us,” says Amber Neilson, education and operations supervisor at Sequoia Park Zoo. “We wanted learners to be able to take pictures, collect samples and create presentations to share with other students.” Neilson and her colleagues explored possibilities with Dr. Garry Eagles, Humboldt County Superintendent of Schools, whose office serves the needs of 31 rural school districts and 18,000 students. Eagles, likewise, envisioned a learning environment where students could learn outside the classroom, enabling the zoo’s education staff to teach and bring excitement to learning. Together they set out to equip the learning center with tablets for students and educators to learn more about the salmon, otter and eagle exhibits. Colby Smart, HCOE e-learning specialist, was assigned to research, purchase and set up the new technology. “Our goal was to create an environment that expanded the classroom experience beyond the walls of our schools,” says Smart. “This included traditional classes, afterschool programs or special clubs. Our belief is that learning can also happen outside of the classroom.” However, Smart knew he would need more than tablets and classroom displays to do the job. “From my experience, one of the biggest challenges that educators face when implementing technology in the classroom is device management. We needed a solution that would help us control how the tablets were used and make it easy for the zoo’s staff to conduct classroom programs in the learning center.” The Customer Need: Enable Immersive Learning Experiences

Samsung GALAXY Tablets Empower educators and engage students with Samsung Galaxy tablets. Learn more After reviewing a number of solutions, Sequoia Park Zoo and the Humboldt County Office of Education chose to deploy the Samsung School interactive learning suite in the learning center. The solution was introduced by the Ray Morgan Company, who has previously deployed Samsung School in numerous traditional school settings. The Samsung School interactive learning suite is a fully integrated one- to-one learning solution that combines Samsung Galaxy tablets, large- format classroom displays and other technology with powerful, interactive management software to create a student-centric learning environment. The solution includes classroom management tools such as screen sharing, student screen monitoring and device control. The Samsung Galaxy tablets enable students at the learning center to venture into the park and surrounding forest to take pictures and research animals and plants for presentations that are then shared with classmates back in the learning lab. Using Samsung School, the instructor can wirelessly mirror his or her tablet’s screen to the large interactive display to introduce new concepts, or assign a student as the presenter to showcase their group’s research. The screen monitoring feature allows the teacher to ensure students are staying on task, while instant quizzes and polls can be used to quickly gauge understanding. “The Samsung School with the Galaxy tablets together really caught my eye,” Colby says. “We researched several tablets out in the market. However, they lacked the cohesive classroom management capabilities we needed. Samsung School, with the in-class management features, together with the Samsung displays and Galaxy tablets, was exactly what we were looking for.” The Watershed Heroes learning lab features a 65-inch Samsung display with a touch overlay for use in classroom presentations and interactive demonstrations. Additional 40-inch displays are used to dynamically present information on the exhibit. For example, one display is used next to the bald eagle enclosure to show live video feeds from a webcam perched above a large eagle nest. For the first time, students can view the nesting and parenting routines of a local pair of bald eagles. The Solution: Zoo Unleashes Samsung School with Tablets and Displays

CASEST-TAB-SEQUOIAZOO-APR16J The Results: Interactive Learning Center Sets Benchmark for Zoos Nationwide The interactive learning environment powered by Samsung School has enabled Sequoia Park Zoo to create unique learning programs that motivate students and others to learn more about the region’s wildlife and fragile ecosystem. “We’re receiving great feedback from other educators, kids and parents,” says Sequoia Zoo Manager Gretchen Ziegler. “With the Samsung tablets, we can take students out to the Redwood Forest behind the zoo to collect data and beam it back to the learning center. They can build reports about the size of trees they see on their walks or record details from the streams. There’s so much bio diversity around us. And with the Samsung technology, the sky is the limit with what we can do.” As others heard about the Sequoia Samsung School solution, zoos, schools and libraries expressed interest in benchmarking the exhibit to create technology-enabled learning environments that are immersive and engaging. The Association of Zoos and Aquariums is also looking at the program’s potential across other zoos. “We want to become a trailblazer for other zoos and schools,” says Deborah Claesgens, executive director of the Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation. “We’re receiving overwhelming feedback from the community, asking to help be a part of what’s happening here. That’s an indication that we’re on the right track.” Another sign that Sequoia Park Zoo and Samsung are on the right track is the level of interest from adults. During a recent event, Claesgens and Ziegler gathered feedback from people leaving the learning lab. And what they found surprised them. “More than half the adults in the Learning Lab were participating in the activity, even though it was developed for kids. And teachers from the nearby elementary school are now integrating the learning center into their lesson plans,” Claesgens says.
