SmartLab®

SmartLab® is a hands-on STEAM lab where students can combine exploration with learning. In this highly engaging lab, students pair up with one another and work on a project for three weeks. During this time, the students have opportunities to use state-of-the-art equipment, ask questions, explore a topic on their own terms, and document their process. After the three-week unit is complete, the students present their project to the class—whether it is a finished physical product or a research process. The over-arching goal is for students to better prepared for careers through participating in STEAM project-based learning.
