Greeley-Evans School District 6 has recently made a significant investment in new technology to prepare students for future careers. The district has introduced SmartLabs, high-tech maker spaces, to 17 schools, including Heiman Elementary School in Evans, Colorado. These SmartLabs provide students with interactive stations where they can explore coding, robotics, and electricity in a hands-on way.

Each SmartLab is designed to be tailored to different grade levels, skill levels, and can even be translated into different languages, making them accessible to a diverse group of students. The goal is to have a SmartLab in every elementary and middle school in the district by the end of the summer.

These SmartLabs are created locally by Creative Learning Systems in Longmont and are aimed at preparing students for high school and post-secondary education. By engaging in activities like exploring circuits and software programming, students are exposed to potential career paths in fields like electrician work, software engineering, architecture, and more.

The district’s investment in SmartLabs is viewed as a critical step in equipping students with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in the future job market. By providing access to cutting-edge technology and hands-on learning experiences, Greeley-Evans School District 6 is empowering students to explore their interests and passions in a dynamic and engaging way.
