2. Building communities of practice while implementing Lab4U
Building communities of practice while implementing Lab4U In the previous episode, Komal spoke with Nathan about the achievement gap, and his experience as a teacher in the US and in Mexico. In this second episode we talk about how we could solve the problems in science education building a better future. At Lab4U we are moving the needle to make sure students have access to quality science education. To make education accessible to everyone, Lab4U partnered with the US Embassy and CEMEX to launch a scholarship program for science teachers in Mexico, empowering them with tools to change the way they teach science remotely. Listen to this episode and learn how Nathan built a community of practice with science teachers making a difference in the lives of thousands of students during a pandemic.

1. “Democratizing science education and reducing the achievement gap” with Nathan Marks

This is a very important topic for us, because core to our mission is the idea that talent is universal but opportunities are not. In this episode we have an insightful conversation between Komal Dadlani, Lab4U’s CEO and Nathan Marks, who leads Lab4U’s North America’s office. Nathan Marks is a globally minded professional working in the intersection of education, technology and social innovation; and he is committed to creating a more just and equitable world by broadening access to a high-quality education.
