An innovative program like National Lab Day that encourages STEM education in youth is crucial for students to be able to enter the growing career opportunities offered in the life science field and to help establish a highly-skilled, diversified, and much needed life sciences workforce for tomorrow.
Executive Director, California Biotechnology Foundation
“What a great idea to have a National Lab Day, where we can get our students involved with mentors through the national lab. California’s future economy is all related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The more we involve our students with National Lab Day, the more they are going to bring back to their classrooms the kind of experience and excitement that they can see the results of what happens with science. The California State University as a system wants to do everything we can to promote National Lab Day.”
Charles B. Reed
Chancellor, The California State University
I am honored to join with National Lab Day to highlight the important work and the fantastic volunteers helping to provide STEM education to our students.

California Secretary of Education
Now more than ever we need to support STEM education,” said Assemblymember Jerry Hill. “As global competition increases for our home-grown high-tech and bio-tech industries, federal and state government needs to help our schools develop the next generation of young scientists, engineers and mathematicians. The California Legislature is proud to part of the Educate to Innovate initiative and supports National Lab Day through Assembly Concurrent Resolution 116 which proclaims May 12th as California Lab Day.
California Assembly member Jerry Hill, Chair, Assembly Select Committee on Biotechnology
“Technological innovation has been key to our country’s success. To maintain our ability to lead in technology, we need to inspire young people to develop skills in math, science and engineering. National Lab Day will not only give students the opportunity to learn through hands-on projects, it will also expose them to great role models, and show how much our communities care about their development”
