Request a Lab to Life Visit

Requesting a Lab to Life Visit 

Thank you for your interest in our Lab to Life program! We look forward to the opportunity to serve your school/group this year! After over a decade of traveling the state to bring unique lab experiences to students and the community, the mobile lab buses have retired!  However, students can receive a similar lab experience at their school through a Lab to Life visit.

To request your visit, follow these steps:

  1. Please make sure you've reviewed our Lab to Life Program's main page to familiarize yourself with the program and which activities you are interested in for your visit. 
  2. Identify a list of dates that your school is unable to receive a visit from the program (teacher workdays, holidays, testing dates, spring break, track-out dates, etc). Our educators will use this to determine a tentative visit date for your school. Due to the volume of requests we receive, and our goal of serving as many schools and students across the state as possible, we are rarely able to accommodate a request for a specific visit date. 
  3. Complete and submit the form below with information about your school's requested visit.

After submitting your form, reservations staff will contact you within 1-2 business days to let you know if we need anything further prior to turning your request over for scheduling. 

Our Outreach team schedules visits based on location, travel time, and proximity to other schools that have also requested visits from the same program. This means that the Outreach team will wait until a sufficient number of requests are submitted before the first schools are scheduled. Requests for the 2019-2020 school year are open now, and our educators will start adding schools to our visit schedule in mid to late August.

Once our Outreach team has determined a tentative date for your School’s visit (which may take up to 1-2 weeks from the date you submit your request if made after September), our Reservations team will contact you by email to inform you of the tentative date and schedule of programs and ask to confirm your visit.

All questions marked with an * are required.
