The 2015 Mobile Lab Coalition Conference, Accelerating Science Education, is being held in Baltimore, Maryland July 12-15. We have an exciting agenda planned, with workshops and posters from 20 different organizations. The Conference begins on Sunday evening, July 12 with our Welcome Reception and Poster Session. We are accepting abstracts for posters through June 12, and we encourage all attendees to consider bringing a poster to introduce their program to the MLC community or update the community on what your program has been doing.
Remember to register early for the conference. If you register by March 21, you will receive the early-bird registration discount. And don’t forget that members of the Mobile Lab Coalition will also receive an additional discount. Please Mary Stapleton for the member discount code.
This year’s conference will feature a visit to Capitol Hill, engaging workshop sessions (everything from building a mobile lab, to sampling life in an urban waterfront, to evaluating the effectiveness of a mobile lab), lots of networking opportunities and an update from the Board of Directors on the Coalition’s strategic plan. You’ll also have an opportunity to visit and tour several mobile laboratories. If you are interested in bring your mobile lab to the conference, please contact Jennifer Colvin no later than March 31.
Finally, don’t forget to make your travel and hotel arrangements! We have reserved a block of rooms at the Fairfield Inn and Suites. You can find all the information you will need to make your travel and hotel arrangements on the Conference website. We’re looking forward to seeing you in July!
