In March, our all-new LabVenture program was honored as a finalist for the SXSW EDU Learn by Design competition in Austin, TX. The SXSW EDU® Conference & Festival fosters innovation in learning by hosting a community of optimistic, forward-thinking, purpose-driven stakeholders.

GMRI Chief Education Officer Leigh Peake traveled to the conference to showcase LabVenture alongside project partner Upswell.

“It was so rewarding to have LabVenture in the national spotlight at a conference that celebrates the best of the best in learning design,” said Peake. “To share the stage with other amazing learning projects was truly inspiring.”
