Daily Dish: Children Head to the Labs to Learn about #STEM Careers (#WeekAtTheLabs)
February 29, 2016 04:11 pm
This week the White House launched “National Week at the Labs,” where more than 50 National Labs in more than twenty states are opening their facilities to thousands of students from local neighborhoods to allow children to participate in hands-on activities and work directly with scientists and engineers to learn about STEM careers. The White House is also encouraging local communities to host their own Week at the Lab events at schools, libraries and organizations to support STEM learning. The initiative is in partnership with White House Council on Women and Girls (CWG) and the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Task Force.
