WAGiLabs are like treehouses. They can be built anywhere where fertile minds, committed teams and an atmosphere of innovation exist. We link every domestic WAGiLab with an international lab. By pairing these “sister sites,” we promote empathy and global perspective in our WAGikids.
Our labs are mixed-breeds: part-laboratory, part-makerspace and all around playground for discovery. Environment is no obstacle for us – we can build a WAGiLab at a school, on a bus or in a tent.
