U.S. Treasurer Inspires SmartLab Students

Written by SmartLab Learning

United States Treasurer Rosie Rios spent time with students in the Slater Middle School SmartLab HQ in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Rios is passionate about inspiring kids, especially young girls, to pursue an interest in math and science. While inspiring students, Rios was inspired by the students’ achievements in the SmartLab HQ.

We are grateful to her for making it a priority to meet and encourage young learners. Instilling a passion for math and science is a difficult, but critical task. In the SmartLab HQ, we support math and science through applied technology and project-based learning. We infuse technology, including digital art and multimedia to connect with learners that might not naturally gravitate to those areas.

While we work hard every day to engage learners in STEM and other academic pursuits, there is no substitute for role models like Rios to inspire young learners.
