The three inter-related aims of this project, Cyber-Enabled Laboratories for Diverse Students' STEM Success (CELDS3) address larger institutional goals established by California State University Dominguez Hills' (CSUDH) campus leaders to increase access to STEM education for a diverse student population. This project improves the university's capacity to foster diverse, working, and non-traditional students' academic goals in STEM through a new framework for hybrid laboratory instruction that utilizes a cyber-enabled instrument. The aims include re-conceptualizing chemistry laboratory curricula, cyber-enabling a mass spectrometer for remote use, and enlarging the use of the spectrometer through partnerships with community colleges.
