STEP 4: Student Returns Backpack and Gets a New One

At the end of the week, learners return the kits and receive new ones that have been sanitized and restocked with materials. 

“Oh, we can do that ourselves.”

We hear that a lot.

Until someone sits down and tries to develop dynamic, project-based curriculum, source a suite of long-lasting technology and complementary cross-curricular books, and then assemble and deliver it so it’s ready to use on the first day of school.

And that’s just for one kit!

With the unknowns of this school year, we want you to be able to focus on your students. So with the SmartLab On-the-Go program, we’ve done the work for you.

With our 5-step framework, students build knowledge as they follow their curiosity.
