About LabX

LabX is a public engagement program of the National Academy of Sciences.


Program Vision and Mission

A world in which young adults actively use the relevant products and processes of science to inform their problem solving and decision making.

LabX will empower young adults to use science and scientific thinking in their daily lives and in their communities.


Target audience

Young adults (ages 18-37) who have a moderate affinity for science.

We are currently in the process of designing programming based on these core values. The ultimate goal for LabX is to create mechanisms that enable sustained engagement with participants, leading to demonstrable behavior change. Stay tuned to this website for more information!

LabX evolved from the Marian Koshland Science Museum. You can still experience the museum’s exhibits virtually at Koshland-Science-Museum.org.
