SmartLabs Go to China

In 1987, Creative Learning Systems made history creating the first STEM lab in a U.S. public school. Now, the company is poised to break new ground by installing the first STEM lab in the People's Republic of China. This exciting development is the result of a new joint venture with Beijing Zonekey Education Technology Company.

Explaining why the company chose to partner with Zonekey for it's first international joint venture, Matthew Dickstein, CEO of Creative Learning Systems said, "We needed to find the right partner. Zonekey is well respected and established." Zonekey's CEO, Dongmao Song remarked, "In China, it is well known that American people started STEM education." He added, "There over 400,000 schools in China [with] over 200 million students, so China is a big market."

The first pilot programs in China are expected to open in early 2016.
