A Uni Portable Learning Lab, Washington State

Early LearningIn 2013, the Seattle-based Foundation for Early Learning put a Uni Tower into service in Washington State. The Foundation partnered with local organizations (Early Learning Public Library Partnership, First Peoples, First Steps Alliance) to deploy a Uni throughout Washington to promote early learning and support libraries and tribal communities in summer outreach efforts, with a focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

In 2014, the Foundation for Early Learning has merged with Thrive by Five Washington to become Thrive Washington and will continue using the Uni tower. Follow along here.

We’re proud that a Uni is making a difference in Washington!

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
