SVSU, Dow to dedicate mobile science lab

Saginaw Valley State University and The Dow Chemical Company will officially dedicate and publicly unveil a mobile science laboratory during a brief ceremony Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 10:30 a.m. in SVSU’s Ryder Center.

A large RV has been outfitted with scientific instruments to conduct water quality testing and other research. Operated through the Dow Science and Sustainability Education Center at SVSU, the lab will travel to K-12 schools in the Great Lakes Bay Region and beyond to stimulate interest in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, math).

A visiting class of science students from White Pine Middle School in Saginaw Township will attend the event and have the opportunity to be the first K-12 students to utilize the mobile lab.
