Labster is humbled and beyond thrilled to be co-recipients of Reimagine Education’s 2016 Overall Award. The ethos of this award, given for “for innovative education pedagogies [that are] enhancing learning and employability”, precisely aligns with our company vision, to empower the next generation of scientists to change the world. For Labster to successfully enact this vision, we cannot simply be satisfied with helping students to learn; we must also be responsive to the fact that they need to apply their learnings.
Labster has long-respected the minds and talent behind the Reimagine Education team. In 2014, CEO Mads Tvillinggaard Bonde pitched in the Enterprise category and we were awarded a Bronze medal. We were hooked – we had found one of our key stakeholder communities, and we returned to the 2015 event, and again in 2016. Labster deeply admires the Reimagine team’s structure and pedigree – they make it seem easy to attract the most influential thought leaders to their event every year. We at Labster know how much work goes into that achievement, and their ability to deeply and consistently engage with these leaders is awe-inspiring. For Labster to return to Reimagine Education 2016 and win the Overall Prize for our LabBuilder project is a dream come true, and affirms that Labster is building tools that connect student learning to the resultant career.
