“tervis Animates Their Tumblers Using QR (Quick Response) Coding!”
A QR code is trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) and is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached (Wikipedia).
“tervis Combines Technology with Licensing!”
Licensing involves sales and marketing. A licensing agreement authorizes a company which markets a product or service (a licensee) to lease or rent a brand from a brand owner (NFL, Disney, Marvel, etc.) who operates a licensing program.

Field trips provide active learning that reinforce classroom experiences; expose students to real-world workplace environments; and allow explorations of career options. Experiential field trips give students knowledge of their interest and career aspirations, and how they see the world (www.calhospital.org). Relevance is a key! Understanding the connections between what is being taught and career aspirations are essential to both increased student achievement as well as to the development of a trained community-based workforce. For example, when students observe digital designers using QR codes to animate the tumblers, then they understand the need to combine art with higher level programming courses. When teachers, students, and parents can assess meaningful connections and transfer that knowledge from class to real world, everyone benefits.
