LabTV - Session 1

Welcome to LabTV, created by the National Defense Education Program. These webisodes are aimed at enhancing and building America's strength in science and engineering and demonstrate the amazing research that is everyday work at various Department of Defense labs around the country. At the K-12 (pre-college) level, NDEP emphasizes hands-on learning experiences and encourages students and teachers of all ages to "learn by doing" with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Learning Modules. This video focuses on science but also touches on technology, engineering and math.
