In a makerspace, students use technology to create physical and digital inventions. And although they provide hands-on learning for students, makerspaces often lack the rigor that come with our SmartLab Learning solutions.
Our complete, turnkey programs combine more than 650 project-based learning activities, professional development, assessment tools, curated kits, and technology. Plus, with the support of a robust learning program, students learn essential skills like creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
Over three million students and counting
While “makerspace” has been a buzzword in education, we’ve been partnering with schools to implement more-than-maker programs since 1987. Since then, more than 3 million students have benefited from SmartLab Learning programs.
Over the years, we continue to put technology in the hands of students and empower them to create, explore, invent, and solve complex problems. SmartLab Learning programs offer a wide range of resources including:
- 3D printing
- 3D carving
- Circuitry and microelectronics
- Game design
- Digital graphics
- Video production
- Website creation
- Machine construction
- Bridges and structures
- Solar energy
- Wind turbines
- Digital home design
“The SmartLab has so many great resources for our students. It’s like a makerspace on overdrive!”
—Anthony McConnell, Principal, Kipling Elementary School
