Imagine a place in your school where students are smiling and deeply engaged in learning because they are using their entire bodies and collaborating as they learn.

This is SMALLab.

SMALLab research and development was conducted at Arizona State University and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Science Foundation, Intel, and many others.
