Station Labs Benefits

  • Student-Led

    The station labs have been created to be student-led. Students will take ownership of the new content in ways which will increase their engagement.

  • Increased Content Retention

    Students are presented similar content through a variety of mediums which allows them to retain and understand more of the information.

  • Plug and Play

    The station labs use a framework that is easy to set up so that students can focus on what to learn rather than what to do. Easy prep!
