Record Attendance at Our Annual Conference

Written by SmartLab Learning

More than 100 SmartLab Facilitators attended our annual conference this year in Englewood, CO.

Educators from around the country (and as far away as El Salvador) took time from their summer break to attend our annual week-long workshop.

This year’s them was 30 Years of Making Makers, which helped us celebrate the anniversary of our first SmartLab in 1987.

We were excited to welcome Ray Ramadorai as our keynote speaker Ramadorai was a middle school student in the first SmartLab and is now a successful aerospace engineer.

His address inspired the attendees and provided a glimpse into the long-term impact of our SmartLab Facilitators’ work.

Attendees learned about the latest in STEM technology and project-based, student-led facilitation techniques.

In addition to a wide range of hands-on workshops and seminars, the daily “Share Fair” provided an opportunity for facilitators to share student work and learn best-practices and management strategies from their peers.

Thanks to all who attended, our staff, and to Englewood School District for hosting this years’ conference.

Case Study

Going beyond STEM to teach essential skills

When the team at Jewell Houston Academy, a magnet school in Texas, looked for a STEM program, they wanted one that would not only engage students in STEM careers but could also teach conflict-resolution, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication skills.
