Zakaria, Nur Hazwani and Phang, Fatin Aliah and Ali, Mohamad Bilal and Abu Samah, Norazrena (2015) The mobile science laboratory (MSL): a systematic review. In: International Education Postgraduate Seminar 2015, 20-21 Dec, 2015, Johor Bahru, Johor.



Experiments and hands-on activities encourage students to be active in knowledge construction. As students carried out experiments and activities, they explored science concepts and retain the knowledge. Currently, a low number of experiments are carried out because some schools are not equipped with updated experimental apparatus, while some schools’ laboratories are broken and they do not have enough experimental apparatus. Therefore, a systematic review was made to study the use of mobile science laboratory in previous studies and its need in Malaysia context. The findings show that teachers had developed their pedagogical skills and confidence in laboratory teaching instruction. The students gained conceptual understanding, retained science learning, increased interest in subject and experiment, and interest to choose career in STEM.
