National Lab Day is the brain child of Jack Hidary who wants to improve science, technology, engineering, and math education in the U.S.A. Through National Lab Day, scientists are matched with teachers in need of their intellectual capital. Much like you–citizen scientists–are lending your brains to science, scientists participating in National Lab Day are lending their brains to K-12 grade education. And there are opportunities for you to help teachers, too. Check out National Lab Day for more information. Here’s a terrific video summarizing this effort, just released at the infamous TED conference today. It reminds me of this magical remix of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos.
