The Logan Learning Lab 2022

June 28, 2022

What an extraordinary, action-packed couple of weeks it was at the 5th year of the Logan Learning Lab! From OOBEE trips to unit project building, big buddies, new Lab students and returning Lab students, the joy we saw throughout was in full expression.

The Lab launched ​student programming​ in the summer of 2018​ ​to make Logan’s unique model accessible to a greater number of underrepresented gifted students - students of color and low-income students, who are both formally and informally identified - from neighboring public schools.

Each day of the Lab, students dive deeper into their selected unit topic and explore subject matter through off-site trips with their unit trip teachers, classroom discovery, research, and building.

Big buddies are there throughout the Lab to help, guide and support lab students with everything from physical projects to relationship building and peer support.

In classrooms, students researched, did experiments, built models of their topic and did lots of writing about their learning (and more!)

Thank you to teachers, fellows, Lab students and families! And, thank you to our alumni parents, local foundations, and community members for supporting this vision.
