Tiffin University is constantly searching for new and educational things to help both its current and future students. Science and technology are among the fastest-growing areas of study within the TU community. With the upcoming reveal of the Center for Science and Technology, the science department has been thinking about ways to educate and engage students more effectively.
Dr. Joyce Hall-Yates, Vice Provost and Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences met with Alloway Labs to identify how TU could integrate experiential learning into its science programs. Alloway Labs is an environmental laboratory that specializes in analyzing drinking water, wastewater, solid waste, and hazardous waste. Alloway also offers innovative software, laboratory development, and training options. They are excited to announce the launch of their new division, EnviroGo. EnviroGo trailers are customized with sampling and monitoring packages designed to provide everything you need in a convenient, mobile unit. Each unit is outfitted with all the features required to meet your needs.
“GO ANYWHERE – Conduct sampling and monitoring over extended periods of time in remote locations.
GO CUSTOM – EnviroGo trailers are customized to meet your needs, allowing each unit to be used in a wide variety of applications.
GO ENVIROGO – As a division of Alloway, we have been in the environmental sampling and analysis industry for more than 35 years.”
On Friday, Sept. 24, 2021, TU invited EnviroGo for a demonstration of their applications in environmental sampling and analysis. TU looks forward to collaborating with this organization because they have the ability to help support our students’ research needs and enhance their educational takeaways.
“Alloway Labs is very supportive of education. As a company with leading environmental testing scientists, they understand that students in science learn through experiential lab work. In working with EnviroGo, students can learn to perform labs, and understand the data from these labs,” said Dr. Hall-Yates.
Dr. Hall-Yates announced that the Department of Sciences and Mathematics and the School of Arts & Sciences are discussing a range of projects for the use of EnviroGo, based on current programs, and on laboratory processes in the growing field of environmental testing and tracking. “Students will learn how laboratory equipment is used to enable testing, understand the scientific parameters of testing, and review and discuss data. Professors will also lead in the discussions of how this data can be used in different industries and companies, with the goal of supporting a high quality of life for others in our communities.”
EnviroGo will be able to help with various programs and majors at TU, including their B.S. in Forensic Science, BCJ in Criminalistics, Tiffin Core (Tiffin general education), and others.
