Growing a 4-H Career Pathway Mobile Lab

This mobile lab is sponsored by

This mobile lab will be based in Weld County Extension March through June, 2020.

The Colorado State University Extension (CSUE) Building a 4-H STEM Career Pathway Mobile Lab is a transportable educational resource equipped with projects, activities and materials intended to develop STEM Career Pathways for youth through experiential learning in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The theme of this trailer focuses on computer science and engineering.

The equipment within the CSU Extension Building a 4-H STEM Career Pathway Mobile Lab can be utilized for indoor learning opportunities. However, the trailer is also equipped with everything needed to set up an outdoor self-contained pop-up 4-H STEM/Maker space. This feature makes the CSU Extension’s 4-H mobile labs an excellent addition for school fairs, day camps and educational festivals.
