What is SAM?
The UConn Science Alliance Mobile (UConn SAM) is a 3 room, 252 square foot 2012 IHC Navistar LifeLine Mobile® Laboratory. The truck is approximately 40 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 13 feet tall.
This summer, SAM will be outfitted with a soundbooth, space for behavioral testing, a meeting room, and computer space for mobile equipment use.
Our goal is to have SAM available as a service center vehicle for the community to reserve for on-campus or off-campus research and outreach beginning Fall 2023. We will have a scheduling system for booking, a competitive fee structure to cover operating costs, and a driver pool available to make reserving SAM seamless.
