This mobile Lab is sponsored by Colorado’s Electric Cooperatives.

This mobile lab is based at Garfield County Extension.

The Colorado State University Extension (CSUE) Mobile 4-H Energy Lab is a transportable educational resource equipped with projects, activities and materials intended to promote experiential learning in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines with emphasis on energy conversions, production and conservation.

The equipment within the CSUE Mobile 4-H Energy Lab can be utilized for indoor learning opportunities. However, the lab is also equipped with everything needed to set up an outdoor self-contained pop-up 4-H STEM Maker space. This feature makes the CSUE 4-H STEM labs an excellent addition for school fairs, day camps and educational festivals.

The CSUE Mobile 4-H Energy lab is equipped with both solar and wind powered energy capabilities which allows for alternative renewable power generation while in use.  The components for each power source is neatly fastened to display boards for alternative energy teaching opportunities.
