Kingston University brings interactive science to schools in our two mobile laboratories. Our Lab in a Lorry programme delivers STEM taster sessions that are fun, hands-on and interactive directly to learners. Our mobile science labs visit primary and secondary schools, colleges and community groups across London and Surrey.
Each of our lorry visits is tailored to meet the needs of the learners; prior to our visit we will discuss the required session content to ensure it supports students' learning and is appropriate for the specific needs of the group. Please see below some examples of the type of activities we have delivered to date.
If you are looking to cover STEM subjects in greater depth and use a wider range of university facilities why not visit us in our STEM Outreach Centre at the Kingston University Penrhyn Road Campus.
We are generally able to cover 2 main topic areas in each Lab in a Lorry visit, please do state any areas of interest when requesting a visit and we will be in touch to discuss your requirements.
