Just read this wonderful article in the Orange County Register about Haskell STEM Academy's new SmartLab. The article speaks to the necessity of a clear vision in approaching STEM initiatives and the importance of dedicated and creative school leadership in pursuing that vision. Plus I'm always a sucker for any article that captures the excitement of students when they're introduced to the SmartLab.
[One minor correction to the article - the Haskell SmartLab is currently the largest in Southern California though there are larger SmartLabs in other regions]
Worth a read!
We enjoyed reading this recent column in the Clovis News Journal. Like most adults who visit a SmartLab, the writer was dazzled by the energy and initiative shown by students in the SmartLab. It can be even more impressive to find such an advanced learning environment in small communities like Clovis, New Mexico. We appreciate the commitment of Clovis Municipal School District to provide such rich learning experiences for their students and applaud the Clovis News Journal for giving their community this glimpse into the SmartLab experience.
