National Lab Day: Obama Science Initiative


An initiative of the Obama Administration, launched in November 2009...

Looking for help with your science fair, or with a lesson, or maybe someone to host a field trip, advise an after-school program, help with a hands-on activity, or supply some cool lab equipment? Wouldn't it be great to have a scientist or engineer come speak to your kids about their work?
You can make it happen through National Lab Day (NLD). At the NLD website you simply sign up then submit your idea for a project (or what you need in your classroom) and the website matches your request with a local volunteer (a university STEM student, local scientists, engineers, STEM professionals and other members of the community) who has also joined the NLD hub.
