In partnership with the Texas Education Agency, Learning Undefeated presents the Texas Mobile STEM Laboratory program for the 2020/21 school year. The Texas Mobile STEM Lab is a custom outfitted STEM learning space that offers engaging, immersive, hands-on STEM experiences for students and teachers, teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics topics and skills.

Request a Visit for your School
Teachers and/or administrators may request a visit for their school beginning June 1 for the following school year.
All Texas public schools that offer classes for grades K-8 are eligible to request a visit. At least one school from every education region will receive a visit each school year. Priority for visits will be given to schools in rural areas and those demonstrating high economic need (majority student body that qualifies for free & reduced meals).
In subsequent years, priority will also be given to schools that have not yet had a Mobile STEM Lab visit. A visit is typically one week long but may be extended to two weeks if the school has more than 500 students.
Onboard the Lab, students are immersed in a self-directed career exploration experience using augmented reality and game-based learning, taking them on a multisensory immersive journey as they explore high-demand STEM careers. The Lab transports activity resource carts for in-classroom, hands-on learning and STEM activities for students in grades K-8.
Classroom teachers will have access to curriculum, resources, equipment, and on-site support from Mobile Laboratory staff to present the TEA approved STEM activities in their classrooms. At the same time, smaller groups of up to 15 students will participate in the 20-minute immersive learning experience onboard the Mobile Laboratory. This model allows us to serve up multiple classes of students simultaneously.
