When we started building the Science Adventure Lab in 2008, the Mobile Laboratory Coalition played an instrumental role in helping us develop our program. Our membership in the coalition has allowed us to share best practices with other programs and learn from our peers so that we are always improving and finding better ways to inspire our students.
Mobile labs are becoming increasingly recognized as an innovative platform for improving access to STEM education. We are committed to helping new and emerging programs develop. In 2016, we received a National Institutes of Health grant that funds staff exchanges between new and established mobile lab programs, and supports mentoring activities and travel to our annual conference.
