Mobile Laboratory Coalition

The Mobile Laboratory Coalition is a member organization of traveling laboratory and other laboratory-based education programs built upon scientist and educator collaborations to address the nation’s science education challenge by providing equity of access to authentic hands-on, inquiry-based, contemporary science education for K-12 students, educators, and the community.

Vision of the Mobile Laboratory Coalition

The escalating importance of science and technology to the prosperity of American society demands an educated populace able to meet pressing science career needs, ensure national economic development, and improve human health. The Mobile Laboratory Coalition is a partnership of traveling laboratory and other laboratory-based education programs, institutions of higher education, and K-12 schools and school systems, built upon scientist and educator collaborations that will address the nation’s science education challenge by providing equity of access to authentic hands-on, inquiry-based, contemporary science education for K-12 students, educators, and the community. Providing equal opportunities for all populations will ensure that those who have been historically disadvantaged and underserved will finally gain access to the science and technology workforce.
