Smithsonian Launches Virtual 'Lab' with More Than One Million Resources

Jun 23, 2016

MEET ME AT THE (NATIONAL) MALL: If you can’t take your students to the Smithsonian live and in person, take them virtually. Launched this week, the Smithsonian Learning Lab contains more than one million resources (videos, photos, and documents, for example) on topics from the Discovery space shuttle to the French and Indian War. Students and teachers can organize content into “collections” and set up quizzes or assignments, among other things. The Lab’s Senior Digital Strategist Darren Milligan also says that the array of content will grow over time, both with user-generated resources and new digital museum artifacts.
