At High Point University, we want to make the biology and chemistry of our natural world accessible to all students throughout our community. In doing this, we hope to foster in our community an interest in biology and chemistry through scientific experimentation. HPU’s Mobile Lab is our community’s science lab on wheels and is staffed by HPU Undergraduate Science Faculty/Students.
Our mobile lab is currently partnered with select HPU campus events and schools in the greater High Point area and Guilford County.
If you are interested in partnering with the Mobile Lab, please fill out this survey.
In 2016, HPU awarded a Think Big! Grant to Professors Coffield, Segarra, and Srougi that would provide HPU students enrolled in biology and chemistry courses the opportunity to teach science to our community through laboratory experimentation in a Mobile Lab. This grant brought about the creation of the Mobile Lab. The Mobile Lab is integrated into the HPU undergraduate science curriculum and allows our students to create experimental modules on HPU’s campus with the purpose of increasing the accessibility to the experimental sciences in our community. Student-driven experiments are conducted hand-in-hand with our High Point community partners in the Mobile Lab.
