Mobile eXploration Lab (MXLab)

The country’s largest, most advanced mobile STEM education vehicle, the Mobile eXploration Lab (called MXLab for short) was custom-designed by Learning Undefeated to expand new technology and laboratory science experiences and pique students’ interests in STEM learning and careers.

Inside the lab, Learning Undefeated’s educators engage participants in hands-on experiences using technologies not available in schools. MXLab instructors combine Learning Undefeated’s core bioscience and chemistry curriculum with data set modeling, virtual reality, cybersecurity and game-based learning. Funding for the MXLab represents a unique public-private partnership, with investments made by Learning Undefeated, the State of Maryland, philanthropic organizations, and corporate supporters.
