The mission of Pop-Up Labs for Sustainability is to merge sustainability with STEAM learning to help youth discover their potential in the fields while inspiring commitment to protect our Earth. 


Students need to discover the relevance of STEAM to the complex environmental issues confronting our planet and to acquire the skills they'll need to become the innovators, educators, and conservationists of their generation.

Meet the Team

We are small team of dedicated individuals working together to achieve the goal of bringing excitement to STEAM-disciplines that are geared toward protecting and preserving the environment to students.
