PlayLab develops and delivers educational products that enable children to learn essential skills such as communication, leadership, critical reasoning, and creativity, which are largely over looked by our school system today. Through PlayLab’s design thinking process, similar to Stanford Design Process, student both develop a deeper level of understanding of subject matter while working with peers to enrich skills.
