2018 OSU National Lab Day (NLD)

Tuesday May 15, 2018

Dear High School Science Teachers,

On behalf of Oklahoma State University and the OSU National Lab Day Planning Committee, I would like to announce that registration for the 2018 NLD event is open:

National Lab Day provides high school science teachers and students with an opportunity to visit research labs and engage with STEM faculty while learning about current research taking place on the OSU campus. In addition to visiting labs, students will have the opportunity to learn about STEM majors offered by four different OSU colleges on the Stillwater OSU campus. The 2018 NLD event can only host up to 19 teacher/student teams so register early to ensure that you get a spot for you and your students. There is no cost to register or attend the event, and lunch will be provided free for all NLD participants. The NLD event will begin with check-in at 8:00 and end at 3:00 on Tuesday May 15th.

High school teachers are eligible to bring up to 7 students (sophomores and/or juniors interested in pursuing a STEM major) to the 2018 NLD event. Space is limited so register today at:

We look forward to seeing you and your students at the 2018 NLD event.


Dr. Julie Angle, NLD Committee Chair
