Our Mission

The mission of INL’s K-12 Education Enrichment Programs is to inspire Idaho’s future STEM workforce; impact students, teachers and families by integrating best practices in STEM education; and empower employees to become STEM mentors to transform K-12 Education Enrichment into a driver for innovation.

Learning from home: Tips and tricks for parents

As students, teachers and parents adjust to learning at home, INL’s K-12 Education Program is dedicated to supporting these efforts. A team including 13 dedicated professional educators have been designing and testing lessons that can be used for remote learning. Each new activity is hands-on, aligned with curriculum standards, uses only items commonly found around the house, and is tailored for a specific grade range. Scroll through the “Learning at Home” section of our resource library to download these lessons.

Here are some Tips and Tricks that may help your student learn at home.

Explore Nuclear Science and Engineering

INL is the leading laboratory in basic and applied nuclear and radiological science research and applications.

National Security Research and Testing

INL’s applied engineering discipline help DOE, DHS and industry partners solve significant national security challenges in critical infrastructure protection and nuclear proliferation.

Energy and Environmental Sustainability

An overarching thrust of INL research is energy security — the nation’s greatest challenge for the 21st century. Energy security includes resource security, economic stability and long-term environmental sustainability.

Explore Nuclear Science and Engineering

INL has nearly 70 years of experience in nuclear reactor plant design, operations and decommissioning, and nuclear materials processing. The lab’s expertise is routinely sought by national and international customers. These standout capabilities are key to supporting DOE’s Light Water Reactor Sustainability and Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) programs. All INL nuclear operations are based on a long tradition of safe and cost-effective operations.
