SmartLab HQs Providing New Opportunities for Tukwila Students

Written by SmartLab Learning

We recently partnered with Tukwila School District in Washington to help them fulfill their STEAM initiatives by implement SmartLab HQs at three schools in their district.

Located near Sea-Tac International Airport, Tukwila School District serves a diverse school community. About 40% of district students qualify for English Language Learner services and approximately 80% are eligible for free and reduced school meals.

The district’s goal is to provide learners with an early exposure to STEAM experiences to prepare them for academic and career opportunities in high school and beyond.

“Once the kids have been introduced to STEAM at the elementary level, the concepts and the application increase in rigor as they get to middle school,” said Vivian Palmer, the district’s Executive Director of Accountability, Assessment, and Technology. “By the time they get to the high school, they will be better informed as to which career pathway they want to take.”
