St. Patrick Catholic School is excited to have its very own SmartLab® Innovation Center on our campus. SmartLab® is a fully integrated learning environment where everything from the furniture and technology to curriculum and assessment work together to support hands-on, minds-on learning. It’s a place where personalized learning and intrinsic motivation engage students of all ages, interests and abilities.
SmartLab® programs engage learners as they apply technology to projects of their own design. As they work on their projects, they build academic connections and develop 21st-century skills. Whether students are exploring robotics, coding, websites, video broadcasts, circuitry, or structures, they’re developing critical-thinking skills. They’re solving problems. They’re collaborating. They’re learning valuable project and time management skills. And they’re reflecting, communicating, and presenting not only their projects…but their learning. They’re building skills, knowledge and interest critical for college and career success.
Students in grades 3rd through 8th will explore STEM and media arts through applied technology and project-based learning in our SmartLab® throughout the school year.
