Lab School History
 
Did you know . . .

In 1926, Smith College President William Allan Neilson established both The Smith College Nursery School and The Smith College Day School.

These laboratory schools were established to serve as a learning environment for Smith students in education and psychology. The Day School is now known as the Smith College Campus School, enrolling children from kindergarten through sixth grade. The Campus School continues to provide an exemplary education for elementary school students and to serve as a laboratory for the study of teaching and learning.

INSECTS AS ENGINEERS:
Our first graders are studying how insect adaptations solve problems within the environment. Insects must build colonies, cut leaves, haul materials, and defend themselves from predators. Our budding scientists study how insect bodies resemble the meshing parts of simple machines in order to fly like mosquitos, zip across water like a water strider, tunnel like ants, and cut, carry and chew vegetation. In addition, they are studying the insect drawings of the German artist Maria Sybell Merian and then studying insects and creating their own sketches. Click here for more.
