The LabXchange platform was launched in early 2020, shortly before the COVID-19 crisis accelerated around the world. At its core, the platform is a free resource of science education for students and teachers.
LabXchange is driven by the fourth United Nations Sustainable Development Goal: inclusive and equitable access to good quality education for all. The platform offers students and teachers the freedom to conduct scientific experiments without the usual costs associated, explore a treasure trove of curated content and media, and connect with mentors and peers.
Hubble Studios worked in close collaboration with Dr Rob Lue, principal investigator and Harvard University’s Professor of the Practice of Molecular and Cellular Biology, and various other development partners to bring this project to life.
Only a few months after its launch, it is evident that LabXchange is a growing success. As a demonstration of this fact, it has been awarded the first-ever Open edX Technical Project Prize in recognition of the work in creating the most impactful Open edX project to date. Surely, one of many more milestones to come.
Hubble Studios would like to offer our congratulations to Dr Rob Lue and the LabXchange team and partners. We are exceptionally proud to be part of this dynamic and innovative project!
