STEM + STEAM Learning
in Wisconsin



Wisconsin’s Educational Mission

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has a clear vision for STEM learning: that “all students use a collaborative, innovative, and logic-based transdisciplinary approach, rooted in content knowledge, skills, and experiences, to identify and solve contemporary problems.” 

This vision is founded on the notion that STEM is a holistic “transdiscipline,” helping young learners connect seemingly discrete concepts and academic subjects to real-world, relatable scenarios. This ability to make connections is precisely what SmartLab Learning aims to accomplish through hands-on, project-based learning for students of all ages and abilities.


Support STEM + STEAM Literacy

Per the goals of the Wisconsin DPI, all students in grades 4–12 should be actively developing “STEM literacy” through a cohesive, holistic, progressive curriculum. SmartLab Learning Solutions like the SmartLab HQ and SmartLab Studio help young learners become comfortable around technology and STEM concepts, identify new interests and abilities, and develop critical skills they can apply to their future careers.

  • Learners authentically engage with core math and science concepts in a fun, project-based environment | Learn More
