• Welcome to the SMS IdeaLab 
  • The Smithton IdeaLab is a flexible space for students and teachers to use. The space can be reserved for your class, small groups, or individual students to come and work. Activities that are marked with a "**" have a corresponding Schoology module ready to go. More coming soon!
