To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, LAB-AIDS is sponsoring the Long Island Science Education Leadership Association’s (LISELA) Spring Conference and Dinner on March 11th at Molloy College’s Suffolk Center.

In addition, Dr. Mark Koker, Director of the LAB-AIDS Institute, will be facilitating a workshop on how to meet Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) requirements with hands-on science activities.
