Live Science Series
Join us in live shows that explore innovative research and related hobbies at home. Each episode in the series highlights scientists and researchers at Berkeley Lab. Make sure to download the worksheets beforehand to follow along in easy at-home activities.
Advanced Light Source - June 19
Ever wondered what goes on within the iconic dome building at Berkeley Lab? Our particle accelerator supports research in a wide variety of fields. In this episode, we'll build a crystal together and learn how x-ray crystallography is used to examine structures.
First in a series about our Advanced Light Source.
Sustainability & Soil Science - July 3
Composting is a great way to improve sustainability in your home, but there's a lot of science behind that process. Learn a little about soil science with us, and you'll be able to upgrade your home composting systems.
Join scientists from Joint BioEnergy Institute and Joint Genome Institute as they take us through the steps and share tips and tricks for baking bread. All you need is curiosity, water, flour and a jar. Afterwards, learn how some scientists have turned their home gardens into laboratories.
3D Design & Fabrication - May 22
Did you know that our engineers custom build a lot of the equipment used in Berkeley Lab research? Meet some of some of the people behind the big magnets and running experiments on our Advanced Light Source! Stay for a quick introduction to TinkerCAD and learn about the ways in which our scientists and engineers used 3D Design and fabrication in their work.
What the Stars Tell Us - May 29
What do you think about when you look at the stars at night? If you could ask star a question, what would it be? Berkeley Lab researchers learn from the stars and our galaxy all the time. Hear about the work they are doing and get a few tips on what you should look for when you are outside at night.
