SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Saginaw Valley State University and Dow Chemical leaders unveiled a new mobile research laboratory.

The mobile lab is a large recreational vehicle outfitted with scientific equipment to travel to K-12 schools in Michigan to introduce students to hands-on learning opportunities.

SVSU purchased the lab as a part of the Dow Science and Sustainability Education Center.

“We are very grateful to Dow for their generous support, and we share their goal of increasing opportunities for students to pursue careers in STEM,” said SVSU provost and former chemist, Deborah Huntley. “This sort of community engagement empowers our students and faculty to pursue ambitious research and learning endeavors, while collaborating with our corporate and educational partners to inspire the next generation.”

SVSU expects to begin making school visits with mobile lab later this year.

Those interested in arraigning a school visit can contact David Karpovich at 989-964-4349 or at dsk@svsu.edu.
