The Mobile Laboratory Coalition (MLC) Conference is an annual gathering of dedicated professionals who share a passion for inspiring youth and empowering educators by providing expertise, equipment, and hands-on, inquiry-based activities in classrooms on wheels and other laboratory-based based settings. It is an opportunity for member organizations (as well as those interested in creating their own mobile lab program) to come together to share ideas, successes, challenges, and best practices with fellow programs from across the United States and even around the world. Conferences are held annually during the summer at various member locations.
