Watch the Webinar: Implementing Successful PBL + STEM Initiatives
Creating authentic Connections to learning
Engaged learners build strong critical-thinking skills. Every administrator knows: When student engagement improves, classroom performance improves.
SmartLab’s student-led approach leverages students’ interests by asking them to embrace their curiosity and address issues close to them.
This builds a habit of engaged, proactive learning.
Younger students learn to follow their personal interests and identify how they relate to core math and science content.
Older students naturally follow their curiosity as they apply multiple core math and science concepts to projects they care about.
Educators learn to relinquish their roles as knowledge distributers and become “guides on the side” that help students develop their innate curiosity.
Administrators can rely on research that proves engaged students have better attendance and higher graduation rates.
Open-ended projects engage students in critical thinking and problem solving from the start.
State-of-the-Art Tools and Materials
SmartLabs surround learners with leading-edge technology and learning resources.
Built-in Inquiry and Exploration
Projects are structured around the SmartLab Learning Process which encourages students to explore questions connected to their own interests and abilities.
Collaboration and Support
Student-led projects shift responsibility to students to lead their own learning with peer collaboration and teacher support.
