Seeking National Lab Day Volunteers

(This came out last week while I was in Qatar — sorry for the delay, and hope some of you might get involved!)

Dear ACM Member,

May 12th marks the first National Lab Day, a partnership of more than 200 industry and non-profit organizations and volunteers. This year-round effort is designed to bring high-quality, hands-on science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science education experiences to middle and high school students.

National Lab Day is seeking volunteers from the ACM community to be paired with local K-12 teachers through the NLD website. Learn more and sign up to search the NLD interactive map to find projects for your skills, timeframe and location at:

Currently, nearly 50 teacher-identified computer science projects and hundreds of other discipline-specific projects needing volunteers are listed. Your commitment could be as little as a few hours but it is critical to NLD’s success. Volunteer opportunities cover a wide range from mentoring, to helping design and implement hands-on projects, to identifying computing resources.

Please join in this nationwide movement to support active teaching, inspire children, and build long-term relationships between science professionals and the K-12 classroom.
