Lab Schools

Changing Education. Changing Lives.

Scope

What is this project about?

We, as a network of educators that seek improved education for students in rural areas of Africa, are bringing learning to students. By equipping lab rooms with laptops, internet connection, educational resources, and facilitators of learning, we are able to connect African students with school across 90 countries via video conferencing.
Students are guided through a customized Global Goals curricula on STEAM, design thinking, and sustainability that was collaboratively created by volunteer experts from around the world, and they are empowered to take action in both their local and global communities.
Each group of students is guided by one local teacher and has interactions with students and teachers from around the world. This relationship and framework, with many points of connection and perspective, allows for empathy to be central for all participants.
The Lab Schools are sponsored by our partners. Read more.
