Learning Labs has the resources for fun and creative hands-on learning!
Hands-on learning experiences can help struggling students excel in areas they never dreamed possible. By applying real-world scenarios to subjects such as math and science, students can better understand why and how the content applies to them and the world around them. Additionally, hands-on exploration helps students retain new-found skills and knowledge much longer than traditional instruction alone.
Virtually every educational product Learning Labs supplies includes hands-on learning opportunities as well as comprehensive lesson plans and project ideas.
Here are just a few examples:
Neuromaker - Through provided curriculum, hardware, and programming tools, educators can interest students in Computer Science, STEM, CTE Career Fields, Biomedical
