Brandon Valley SmartLab HQ Has Kids Thinking Outside the Box

Written by SmartLab Learning

South Dakota’s Brandon Valley Intermediate School is justifiably excited about their new SmartLab HQ.

Earlier this fall, News4 reported on the new STEM lab and The Argus Leader recently published an article that  provides more perspectives about this innovative program.

In the article, SmartLab Facilitator Matt Mueller provides valuable insights into how SmartLab Learning can benefit the entire school.
