“We are excited to release this new Presidents’ Card series as additional educational and entertaining content for kids using Socrates,” stated Dr. Ralph Thomas, Education Revolution’s President & Chief Technology Officer. “The collectible element of these cards encourages kids to learn more so they can obtain more packs and complete their collections.”
“This card set is consistent with our core values of combining learning with fun content,” stated Brian G. Rosenberg, Education Revolution’s Chief Executive Officer. “Collecting the American Presidents while learning about their impact on our history will be informative and fun.

Each President Card contains information about the President including birthdate, location, and term served. In addition, each card contains fun and interesting facts about each President. Cards are found in collectible card packs, which can be purchased using tickets earned by answering educational questions within Socrates.
