Englewood Schools Offers SmartLab HQs to All Learners

Written by Bill Laurienti

Englewood Schools has become the first district in Colorado to offer fully articulated K–12 SmartLab Learning programs to students district-wide.

Our partnership with Englewood Schools began in 2011 with a single SmartLab HQ in Englewood High School. Since then, we have implemented seven additional labs.

With a generous grant from the Gill Foundation, Englewood was able to add SmartLab Learning programs in each of its elementary schools ensuring that all of its students have access to a next-gen STEM education.

He believes SmartLabs are important tools for engaging unengaged students and helping them access careers they might not otherwise have imagined.

Case Study
