LabPaqs Expand into Forensic Science and Environmental Science

It’s been a busy second quarter at Hands-On Labs, Inc. (HOL).  Our new President,Kevin Melendy, is onboard, and we’re rolling out two LabPaq product lines.  “As the nation looks for ways to put the cost of college within the reach of more Americans, I’m proud to be at HOL as we bring LabPaqs into two science disciplines with optimistic job outlooks,” says Kevin.  “Our LabPaqs dedicated to Environmental Science come at a time when there’s a heightened environmental awareness and growth in environmental science careers.  Our Forensic Science LabPaqs provide a vital, hands-on opportunity for online students to complete their lab requirements without being on campus.”

HOL’s Scientists, Drs. Emily Barter and Eric Punkay, developed the new LabPaqs.  They continue the company’s founding principle of having educators develop experiments for college science courses.  Join them for:
