I have mentioned National Lab Day a couple of times on this blog. National Lab Day is a “nationwide initiative to build local communities of support that will foster ongoing collaborations among volunteers, students, and educators.” On May 12, 2010- these collaborative efforts will be celebrated with NLD activities. Visit the National Lab Day website to learn more. You can even follow NLD on Twitter and stay up to date on the latest news and developments.
