Stem in Motion is a system which allows both students and teachers instant access to all tools without the added cost of a dedicated laboratory. By bringing the lab directly to students, institutions with constrained budgets and overcrowded classrooms can save valuable space while reducing infrastructure and laboratory equipment costs.
With over fifteen years experience developing and manufacturing mobile technology solutions for learning environments, EarthWalk is proud to introduce the STEM in Motion Lab —a multipurpose mobile laboratory designed to engage students and support teachers in hands on science, technology, engineering, and math (S.T.E.M.) coursework. EarthWalk’s STEM in Motion Lab can transform any classroom from a typical, teacher-centered classroom to one driven by student discovery and exploratory learning.
The STEM in Motion Lab’s versatile design can incorporate multiple electronic devices such as data collectors, probe ware or laptop computers in addition to supplying storage for equipment needed to meet curriculum standards for students at every level.
Quality in Construction
STEM-Lab is 100% American made. The frame, chassis and internal structure are 16 gauge solid-steel and can be shipped fully assembled or in kit-form, ready to be assembled on-site. The design includes eight antitheft, locking doors to secure valuable equipment and the electrical, water, and gas management systems. The standard build includes four, solid rubber, six inch diameter wheels with total-locking, swivel casters to assure ease of transport between classrooms and buildings. The lab’s overall size, weight, and height can effortlessly navigate standard hallways and doorways.
Chemical Resistant Epoxy Resin Work Surface
STEM-Lab’s epoxy resin work surfaces meet laboratory grade performance with a strong resistance to chemicals and heat. The custom work surface adheres to ASTM standards for rigidity, chemical resistance, water absorption, and flammability. A folding work surface extension, hinged to the left of the sink, expands the work area an additional eighteen inches in length.
Chemical Resistant Sink and Water System
STEM-Lab’s epoxy resin sink has a single lever faucet, plumbed to a 5-liter, clean water tank along with a 5-liter, chemically resistant waste container. A self-priming, 35-psi electric pump allows for continuous water flow. This pressure-sensing system automatically powers down when the water source is empty to prevent overheating.
STEM-Lab features an electronic device storage and charging compartment with four fixed shelves and eighteen electrical outlets. This secured area can be upgraded to accommodate sophisticated devices such as tablets, netbooks, or laptops. The complete system is powered by a single primary power cord using one standard electrical outlet. All electronic devices, the water system, and system upgrade packages operate simultaneously without fear of overloading the electrical circuit. The unit incorporates an RCD cut off switch for added protection. Four additional exterior outlets are located on the back panel to power accessories such as a projector, instructor laptop or observation camera.
Laptop/Netbook Compartment Upgrade
STEM-Lab’s laptop upgrade package converts the lab’s standard electronic device storage and charging compartment to a true mobile computer lab system. This upgrade package provides storage and charging compartments for eight, full size laptop computers, sixteen netbook computers or tablet devices. This upgrade package enables the lab to incorporate additional custom configuration packages such as EarthWalk’s High Efficiency™ laptop charging system, integrated Ethernet hardwire package, integrated wireless package, or an additional battery charging system. See more details on these custom configuration packages below.
Integrated Gas System
The gas upgrade package configures the STEM-Lab to include a dual valve gas system compatible with natural, butane, or propane gas supplies. This system features barbed-end, fitted gas nozzles affixed to the STEM-Lab work surface and piped to a lockable storage shelf to secure the gas container.
*Gas containers/ tanks not included.
Integrated Presentation Package
The STEM-Lab AV upgrade package adds a movable, elevated presentation podium, which supplies two device-mounting platforms. One platform can be used for the instructor’s laptop and the other can accommodate a projector or presentation device.
* Custom configuration packages require the STEM-Lab laptop upgrade package.
*Integrated High-Efficiency Charging System
STEM-Lab can be configured to include EarthWalk’s patented High Efficiency™ laptop charging system, providing up to 85% energy efficiency when charging most brands of laptop computers or netbooks. The High Efficiency™ charging system simultaneously charges all devices without the use of AC adapters. All internal power systems are customized to the specific brand requirements and integrated into the lab for easy cable management. High Efficiency™ charging guarantees all devices will be safely charged in a single cycle without overloading the electrical circuit, while simultaneously maximizing energy savings.
*BatteryBay Charging System
The EarthWalk BatteryBay™ charging system can store and charge eight additional lithium-ion laptop batteries, allowing laptops to operate via battery power all day long. When a laptop signals “low battery power”, users can easily swap depleted batteries for fully charged batteries for continuous, mobile operation. *Please contact your EarthWalk sales representative for available compatibility options.
*Hardwire Ethernet Package
This optional network package integrates a 10/100/1000 Ethernet network switch into the lab, along with CAT6 Ethernet uplink cables to each laptop/netbook compartment. This system provides IT convenience and ease of operation to administer software updates or imaging via network broadcast. The package adds a stainless steel three port uplink module to the exterior of the cart. One Ethernet cable connection from your network to the cart is all that is required for convenient network access to all devices and peripherals.
