Welcome to Pop-Up Labs for Sustainability

Pop-Up Labs for Sustainability (PULS) operates a mobile science lab that pops-up at schools, youth organizations, and public areas to provide action-oriented enrichment opportunities in sustainable learning by demonstrating a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts+design, and mathematics) approach to students across O'ahu. 

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

The Lab "pops-up" at schools, youth organizations, and public areas all across Oʻahu and stays for extended periods of time to enable students to dig deep into STEAM and sustainable learning. ​

  • Open to students grades Pre-K to 12

  • Variety of sustainability-based lessons

  • Hands-on modules

  • Taught by trained staff and core volunteers

  • Join us in-person or virtually

PULS is now offering a distance learning option for teachers and students to join our virtual classroom. PULS-in-a-Box includes the same content as our in-person lab sessions. Within a PULS box, students will find a welcome letter with instructions to our video lectures, demonstration modules, and supplies needed to continue learning with us from anywhere. Some modules may ask to use supplies that are easy to find around the home.

Women in STEM

This video was written and produced by PULS intern, Brynn Matter. Watch as Brynn explores the gender gap, injustices, and prejudices from the lack of women in STEM fields. By documenting and sharing the stories of women at PULS and the University of Hawaii Cancer Center, she hopes to raise awareness on the issue and encourage more women to pursue careers in STEM. Brynn is now on track to become a pre-med student.
