White House Pushes Science and Math Education

The Jack D. Hidary Foundation in conjunction with the white house is pleased to announce the launch of National Lab Day

National Lab Day aims to inspire a wave of future
innovators and foster U.S. competitiveness by improving the quality STEM
education in America. A collaboration between government and more than 200
public- and private-sector organizations, National Lab Day will connect
students in grades 6-12 to hands-on learning experiences and promote tinkering
in laboratory settings.

We thank all of the supporters and especially the MacArthur Foundation for their help in launching this promising initiative.
