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 in response to President Obama's “Educate to Innovate” campaign, a nationwide effort to help reach the Administration’s goal of making American students competitive in science and math over the next decade. National Lab Day 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 National Lab Day had its official kickoff day last month (May 12th) , NLD is an ongoing five-year initiative. Join us! Nationallabday.org
