Watch the Webinar: Implementing Successful PBL + STEM Initiatives
Successful STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) classrooms are much more than a few kits or “stuff” in a room. SmartLab’s robust packages include environmental design, experiential learning opportunities with hands-on technology and software, standards-aligned supplemental math and science curriculum, and teacher professional development. Together, these help SmartLab students become independent thinkers who synthesize new concepts in order to solve unique problems.
Students who are not naturally proficient in math or science excel.
Students with different learning preferences find paths to experience learning naturally.
Educators support students as they explore career pathways.
Administrators set their schools apart with innovative PBL+STEM programming.
SmartLab’s robust experiential learning opportunities engage students in exploring new skills, tools, and math and science concepts every day.
Meets Students Where They Are
Use age-appropriate tools and learning kits so students learn to use the right tool for the right task.
Grows With Students
Scaffold from K–12 with increasing challenge and self-direction.
Encourages Productive Struggle
Encourage students to select an appropriate level of challenge and take their projects as far as they’re able.
Environments and projects are structured for partner learning. Students learn that quality collaboration is as important as the final work product, making this and other 21st Century skills part of the regular assessment process.
Shows Learning Over Time
Students demonstrate their mastery of new concepts through work product, portfolios, and presentations.
