Carlow’s education programs and the Campus Laboratory School are part of Carnegie Mellon University’s CREATE Lab Satellite Network. The network aims to help educators and communities develop and disseminate new technology and innovative methods of learning and teaching.
CREATE, part of CMU’s Robotics Institute, stands for Community Robotics, Education and Technology Empowerment Lab. It’s a partnership with nine universities in four states and BirdBrain Technologies aimed at increasing local technology fluency.
Each university, or satellite, has an outreach team that facilitates CREATE Lab projects in the community, such as teacher development, training and graduate education programs.
