As schools become more creative about funding educational initiatives, they often turn to their community for support. When it comes to funding SmartLabs, we're seeing these efforts gain traction all over the country. Phenix City Schools (Alabama) is the latest example.
With elementary SmartLabs as a key feature of its i3 initiative (inquiry, innovation and impact) Friends of Phenix City Schools has made great progress towards its fundraising goals. Another boost to these efforts came as local business Anytime Fitness pledged $25,000 for naming rights to the Lakewood Elementary School SmartLab.
Congratulations to Phenix City Schools and a big thank you to Anytime Fitness owners Daniel and Stephanie Blevins for their generous support of Phenix City students.

This wonderful new video from Denver Public Schools is definitely worth watching. The video highlights their commitment to bring STEM to underserved students in the District and the role SmartLabs play in that effort. We are proud to partner with DPS in this critically important mission.
We were honored to participate this week in the official ribbon cutting ceremony of the Campos EPC SmartLab at Samuels Elementary school in Denver Colorado.
