Education & Outreach Programs
We offer a number of programs designed specifically for different stages of STEM education.
Programs by Group
Join us for themed career talks to learn about the wide diversity of STEM professions. Each session, we will be joined by Berkeley Lab staff, Bay Area professionals, and other guest experts to talk about their careers and how they got there.
This series is recorded and open to the public.
We are telling the stories of Berkeley Lab's research and initiatives using StoryMaps: a web-based platform for sharing multimedia narratives with photos, videos, writing, and illustrations.
Each project will include the finished StoryMap, a recorded walkthrough and Q&A with scientists involved, and materials for learning more about the subject. New installations will come out every few months.
Live Science explores the ways that science shows up in our everyday lives. Join us as we highlight the activities and hobbies of Berkeley Lab staff, and show how they relate to innovative research being done at the lab!
This series is aimed at grades 6-12, but is open to all. Episodes are recorded for later viewing
After School Science Hour connects young students with the diversity of STEM subjects and the people who study them
Each of these virtual sessions includes a short lesson on a scientific subject, a conversation with experts who study it, and a fun hands-on project to follow along at home.
This series is aimed at grades k-5, but is open to all. Episodes are recorded for later viewing
