lincoln laboratory classroom presentations photoLincoln Laboratory scientists and engineers are available to give free presentations in local K-12 classrooms. Presentations and hands-on lab activities are available in general subject areas, and precise areas of study such as archaeology, engineering, chemistry, biology, math, Earth science, and physics.

Most presentations can be adapted to different lengths and different grade levels.

To arrange for a classroom presentation, please contact Dr. Todd Rider ([email protected]).

CLASSROOM PROGRAMS
How to Do a Science Project
Demonstrates a variety of experiments. Presentation can be given to individual classrooms or large assemblies to motivate and introduce students to science fair projects several months before the school’s science fair. This presentation can be adapted to elementary, middle, and high schools.

Teacher Workshops
In addition to giving classroom presentations to students, we also run free workshops for teachers. We can customize a workshop for any number of teachers, any grade level, and any topic or range of topics.
