Several studies have focused on the different types of laboratories arising with the evolution of technology and their influence within all educational levels concerning Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education. Augmented Reality (AR) is receiving increased attention and interest in recent years, within not only the commercial and the entertainment sectors, but also the educational field. In this paper, some current trends are identified after a brief overview of the state-of-the-art concerning Laboratory-based education. Moreover, challenges are discussed and potential future areas of research are identified. Finally, an outline of a methodology is suggested aiming to identify how the use of different types of labs may affect students' enrollment in STEM-related studies.
