The purpose of the U.S. Department of Education's online newsletter "The Education Innovator" is to promote innovative practices in education; to offer features on promising programs and practices; to provide information on innovative research, schools, policies, and trends; and to keep readers informed of key Department priorities and activities. This issue of the newsletter includes feature article "National Lab Day: More Than the Name Might Imply," highlighting the fact that National Lab Day is not about labs or a day, but a movement that supports STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education in schools by giving students well-equipped labs and access to the STEM-based professionals who can inspire them. Regular sections include: (1) What's New?; and (2) Innovations in the News.
