Khan Lab School

Tinkering with the status quo in Education to find better ways to teach and learn

Experiments to make education better

Sal Khan, founder of the online learning platform Khan Academy, launched Khan Lab School as a testing ground for new learning practices. Together we built a campus in California where teachers take experiment with curriculum and pedagogy and share their findings with educators worldwide.

Kurani created an amazing co-learning space for our unique learning design.

This campus may be the first of its kind — a hybrid mix of school and laboratory. It’s a place where education and experimentation happen simultaneously. Classrooms are each uniquely designed zones to support different modes of working and learning. The diverse environments encourage faculty to test different learning experiences. 

Large interior windows allow everyone to see the educational experiments live. The breakout rooms, commons, and cafe give people places to convene and discuss. 

Just like a lab where scientists are expected to share the results of their testing, the school is equipped with displays for student and faculty work. Nearly everything is mobile and adaptable. The campus is designed with change, evolution, and experimentation in mind.
