In the SmartLab, students explore a variety of technologies such as robotics, circuitry, mechanics, software engineering, and computer graphics. Its intentionally designed learning environment and experience keeps students engaged with hands-on, minds-on learning. It is an action-driven, repeatable process where students:
EXPLORE a piece of technology without any preconceived notions, gather information, and learn how the technology works.
PLAN a project, set SMART goals, determine the outcome, and identify the steps to reach it.
DO & REFLECT on their progress. This iterative process encourages students to document and reflect on their work throughout the project.
SHARE and celebrate their learning as they describe what did and didn’t work and transfer knowledge to their peers and teachers.
