Education & Outreach Programs

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is canceling tours until further notice due to an abundance of caution surrounding the spread of COVID-19. As of now, new tour requests cannot be accepted. We are sorry that we cannot host you at this time, and we hope we can soon reschedule your visit. Tours that have already been scheduled will be given priority for rescheduling.

STEM Education Experiences at Berkeley Lab

Berkeley Lab will continue to partner with Bay Area groups to provide experiences for middle and high school students. Experiences include visiting the Lab, touring facilities, taking part in STEM activities meeting with scientists, and learning about careers. Tours and workshops are intended for student groups in grades 6-12 who are local to the Bay Area. Please fill out an online request to receive additional information and begin the booking process.

Education and Outreach in the Community

Do you have a program at your school in need of scientists and engineers? Is there a STEM/STEAM Night coming up? Berkeley Lab would like to be a part of your efforts! Submit a request so that we can help put you in contact with a speaker or facilitate an activity.

To support our younger scientists, we are happy to help out with STEM/STEAM nights at local schools. In addition, we encourage staff to check out BLISS Kits and host hands-on science activities at youth events. 5th grade field trips to the lab will return in Fall 2020.

Middle school is a time for exploration. In addition to STEM/STEAM nights, we host reverse science fairs to demonstrate and share our science with local schools.

We welcome high school lab visits and host college prep programs such as internships and camps to develop skills and prepare students for higher education in science.
