WASHINGTON, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Science and Technology Medals Foundation (NSTMF) has launched The Lab, a new interactive section of their website with three fun and engaging experiences that highlight the work of America's best and brightest scientists and technologists. The experiences explore the principles of Gravity, Sound, and Image Processing through unique and beautiful interfaces. The work of our nation's brightest STEM stars should be celebrated in an effort to inspire the next generation, and the NSTMF believes that through the Lab, visitors will discover the impact of the Laureates' many accomplishments.
The Lab was created in partnership with Local Projects, an experience design and strategy firm, with a passion for testing the limits of human interaction across a range of platforms that inspire people to participate, share and explore. "Imagine learning about gravity or sound waves by creating your own universe or sound installation, and understanding first-hand the world-changing accomplishments of the National Medal of Science and National Medal of Technology and Innovation Laureates," said Jake Barton, Founder of Local Projects. "The Lab invites visitors to create their own experiences around the world, benefiting from the laureates' incredible work."
The NSTMF is proud to announce this new initiative to build awareness and respect for our National Medal of Science and National Medal of Technology and Innovation Laureates, and to increase enthusiasm for STEM excellence throughout the country. "The Lab represents an experiential destination for visitors. Combine that with our already content-rich nationalmedals.org website, and now, we have created a home on the web for every Laureate, where their accomplishments and lives can be explored and celebrated," said Andy Rathmann-Noonan, Executive Director of the NSTMF.
Please explore the Lab, and each of the experiences online at lab.nationalmedals.org.
The NSTMF's mission is to inspire the next generation of STEM professionals and the public through the incredible stories of the National Medal of Science and National Medal of Technology and Innovation Laureates.
