The Summer Learning Lab is a program that produces the dual impact of enhancing summer enrichment opportunities for low-income students while providing innovative and effective professional development opportunities for high quality teachers.
The Summer Learning Lab is a self-sustaining service that provides free academic and project-based summer enrichment programming for primary and secondary students at low-income public schools, and is designed to address problems at the student and teacher levels. For students, the program will provide enrichment that mitigates the widespread summer learning loss that impacts many low-income children. Also, based on our research, children are more receptive to project-based curriculum, so we expect the program to cultivate academic interest and make provide a more enjoyable learning process for students. For teachers, it will serve as a lucrative and innovative professional development opportunity in which teachers can develop new teaching practices and curriculum that can be sold to education consulting services. The revenue generated through these license agreements will fund future program operations.
