National Lab Day is May 12!

This Wednesday, scientists, engineers, technologists, and mathematicians from across the country will team up with K–12 schools for project-based learning experiences and more.

But National Lab Day (NLD) is more than just a day. National Lab Day is a long-term program/collaboration between STEM professionals and K–12 classroom teachers. Even if you haven’t signed up for this year’s NLD, take a look at the website and projects, and register your class for NLD today.

* Read NSTA Executive Director Francis Eberle’s commentary in this week’s Education Week titled “Making Science Labs a Priority

* Read the blog from OSTP staff on the White House website about the May 6 NLD event in New York City

* Read the e-mail from Energy Secretary Stephen Chu encouraging Dept. of Energy scientists to get involved in National Lab Day

* Read the U.S. House of Representatives resolution (H.Res.1213) introduced by Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), which recognizes STEM education and supports National Lab Day.
