Members of Las Patronas joined Salk Institute staff in March for a ceremony to unveil the new Mobile Science Lab van. The all-volunteer, non-profit fundraising organization donated $25,000 to purchase the vehicle, its wrap-around exterior graphics and interior shelving for Salk's educational outreach program, which annually visits at least 18 schools in the San Diego region to provide more than 2,200 middle school students with hands-on science experience.
