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.
