We are a coalition 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.

The MLC annual Conference is the premiere conference and networking event specifically for STEM educators, professionals, suppliers, and partners.  Join us at the only conference of this kind to learn about advances in informal science education, share ideas, and collaborate with industry thought leaders.  The conference is targeted at both new and established informal science education programs with sessions appropriate for staff in a variety of roles.

The Mobile Laboratory Coalition (MLC) is led by an all-volunteer group that is elected by the membership.
