National Lab Day

For those who don’t know about National Lab Day, it is a nationwide movement to bring together stakeholders in communities of support where science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professionals work together to provide more science experiences to students. National Lab Day is not just one day but a week in May.  Teachers will get the opportunity to work with outside experts. You can simply go on NationalLabDay.org to enter the science project you are interested in teaching, N.L.D. will match teachers with volunteer scientists and engineers in their areas for mentoring. Teachers should become a part of National Lab Day!

This is a great chance for teachers to implement hands-on projects, mentor a student, or even to start a fund-raising to buy needed supplies.  National Lab Day will inspire numerous students.
