Preparing Your Children for the Future

Prepare your children for the careers of tomorrow and inspire lifelong learning.

Ensuring your children, regardless of ability, are prepared for the future—that’s as much our goal as it is yours. With SmartLab Learning:

  • Your children gain essential life skills like setting goals, identifying problems to solve, and managing their time to accomplish those goals.
  • Your children gain the confidence to ask questions, find answers, and creatively develop effective solutions.
  • While working in pairs, your children learn to break down silos, communicate, and gain a deeper cultural understanding of one another.
  • Your children start projects with the goal in mind as they break complex processes into bite-sized chunks, which increases their likelihood of success.
  • Your children gain the confidence to speak up, share their process, and collaborate on solutions.

Smartlab learninghub

Help students meet milestones and keep them engaged with hands-on learning.

SmartLab LearningHub—our online platform—comes stocked with our standards-aligned, project-based curriculum. Students can search for projects and document their learning and growth via their portfolio, while educators can monitor and assess their learners’ progress. 


SmartLab helps prepare your children to enter their post-secondary experience.

SmartLab Learning helps set your children up for success. While diving into hands-on STEM projects, they learn to become leaders, collaborators, and confident members of their community.

Promote Student Autonomy

In a SmartLab, we take the 3 Before Me approach: Learners need to go to three different resources before turning to their teacher for answers. This way they learn to rely on their own initiative, lean on peers, and become more digitally literate.

Gather Authentic Assessment

As your children complete projects that impact their community, they engage in hands- and minds-on learning that helps make complex concepts more concrete. Once finished, they use self-reflection to connect what they’re doing to what they’re learning in their math and science classes.

Provide Equitable Learning

Regardless of your child’s learning style, ability, or interests, they’ll soar with SmartLab Learning. Here, they experience hands-on exploration, follow their curiosity, and learn to try again when something doesn’t turn out as planned.

Introduce Leading-Edge Technology
