National Lab Day is more than just a day - it's a movement. NLD is bringing hands-on, exciting, and experiment-based learning to kids all over the country.
NLD is the ultimate educational matchmaker. Teachers and educators can post a project on our website to request scientists, volunteers or even financial support (through Donorschoose.org). While there is an actual Lab Day every May 12th to celebrate our accomplishments, National Lab Day is a year-long promotional effort and the network is growing every day!
Volunteers, university students, scientists, engineers, other STEM professionals and, more broadly, members of the community are working together with educators and students to bring discovery-based science experiences to students in grades K-12. When an educator posts a project, our system will help them get the resources needed to bring that project to fruition.
On May 12th, 2010 we celebrated the first National Lab Day across the country with hundreds of activities. With the help of NLD, scientists and teachers were able to connect, giving thousands of students memorable hands-on experiences in STEM subjects.
