Together, we can democratize science education.
With our Corporate Partners Program, Lab4U is changing the way thousands of students around the world engage with science. Today we’re inviting you to be part of the change.
Solving education’s biggest challenges
“Talent in universal, but opportunities are not”
Schools have insufficient resources
Science equipment is inaccessible, expensive and hard to use. According to the Inter-American Development Bank, up to 88% of schools in Latin America do not have science labs.
Teachers have a high workload and teach subjects outside of their area of expertise, leaving them with insufficient time to plan inquiry-based science classes.
According to the World Bank there is “Learning Crisis”
Students do not engage in science classes, they are bored and uninspired. There’s low scientific literacy among students, and limited interest in pursuing a STEM career.
Gender gap in science
There’s a persistent gender gap in science, with girls and women underrepresented in scientific careers. According to UNESCO, women only represent 29% of scientific researchers in the world.
Future of the workforce
According to the World Economic Forum 65% of children entering primary school today will end up working in new job types that don’t yet exist.

Inspiring the future of the workforce together
In 2019, CEMEX worked with Lab4U on a project in Mexico which impacted more than 1000 students in 5 different schools during two semesters.
CEMEX supplied students and teachers with Lab4U Premium licenses and was able to promote its brand and positive impact in their communities.
Good intentions are not enough to solve world’s biggest challenges you need a real understanding of science to make a difference in the world. The next Einstein or Marie Curie can be anywhere in the world, help us find them.
Let’s take actions together with impactful initiatives, starting by improving science education one classroom at a time.
Lab4U’s Proven Positive Impact
Successful Randomized Controlled Trial in partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) shows Lab4U’s impact. In this semester-long study, a group of 4,868 students used Lab4U’s solutions for a semester. In comparison to the control group, students who had access to Lab4U (and whose teachers had been trained in inquiry-based science teaching) showed statistically significant increase in the following 3 variables:
- Science knowledge
- Students’ self-concept
- Students’ interest in studying STEM in the future
