The National Institutes of Health, or NIH, is making a collection of engaging, inexpensive experiments for K-12 students, and they need your help. Through the Lessons About Bioscience, or LAB, Challenge, NIH is looking for science enthusiasts – students, teachers, parents, scientists and organizations – to submit their best experiments. The experiment should be original, inexpensive, related to health and life science and easily accessible for use in a K-12 classroom.
For challenge details, visit http://LAB.challenge.gov/.
The deadline to submit experiment ideas is Dec. 1, 2011. Winners will be announced on March 1, 2012. Each winning experiment and submitter’s name and affiliation will be featured online and published in an NIH best-experiments collection, and each winner will receive an exclusive NIH LAB Challenge electronic badge to display online.
