Welcome to Pop-Up Labs for STEAM

Pop-Up Labs for STEAM (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. 

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.
