Educators

We offer programs and resources for educators to connect their lessons to Berkeley Lab research and scientists. For monthly updates on new programs, sign up for our Educator Newsletter.

Berkeley Lab staff are volunteering to virtually share their experiences and work in STEM. We invite students and educators to meet researchers, ask questions, and get an inside look at STEM professions. This program is open to both school groups as well as out-of-school organizations.


The Berkeley Lab Teacher Externship Week gives educators an opportunity to learn about the innovative research happening at Berkeley Lab with the goal of finding ways to connect their curriculum to Berkeley Lab research. Educators will participate in a modeling instruction workshop, speak with researchers, and take part in discussion groups. This opportunity is intended for educators from Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco school districts.

Educator Resources

Live Science is a series of live shows that explore innovative research and related hobbies at home. Each episode highlights scientists and researchers at Berkeley Lab. Accompanying teacher guides and student activity worksheets contain NGSS-aligned lessons related to the episode's topic.

STEM Career Talks are themed career talks every other Thursday of the month 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. Talks are recorded for everyone to view at a later time.
