Haskell STEM Academy SmartLab HQ in the News

Written by Bill Laurienti

Just read this wonderful article in the Orange County Register about Haskell STEM Academy’s new SmartLab HQ.

The article speaks to the need for a clear vision in approaching STEM initiatives and the importance of dedicated and creative school leadership in pursuing that vision.

Plus, I’m always a sucker for any article that captures the excitement of students when they’re introduced to the SmartLab.

(One minor correction to the article—the Haskell SmartLab is currently the largest in Southern California though there are larger SmartLabs in other regions.)
