MEET ACADEMIC NEEDS
The New York State Education Department’s mission to “raise the knowledge, skill, and opportunity of all the people in New York” is fulfilled every day by hundreds of thousands of educators across the state. With over 2 million students enrolled in public schools alone, these educators need engaging, practical learning tools that will help them prepare their students for bright futures and fulfilling careers.
Per New York state standards, students finishing grades pre-K–12 are expected to be able to conduct specific performance tasks, or “investigations,” demonstrating proficiency in each core subject. SmartLab Learning’s project-based approach naturally aligns with this type of assessment, particularly when it comes to NY’s Science and Engineering Practices.
Stem Learning in new york
Countless bright futures begin in the classroom. Early exposure to science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics can open new career pathways for students and empower them to enter New York’s ever-growing STEM workforce.
Project-based SmartLab Learning engagements fulfill learners’ academic and social-emotional needs, bringing STEM and STEAM concepts to life in a way that’s meaningful to students of all ages and abilities.

“The SmartLab Learning team spent hours during the workdays, at night, and on the weekends assisting me with writing a U.S. Department of Education EIR (Education Innovation & Research) Grant for our district. No request was too small for them to respond to during the grant writing process. We appreciate their team and plan to work with them again.”
