Berkeley Lab staff are volunteering to virtually share their experiences and work in STEM with classrooms. We invite students and teachers to meet  researchers, ask questions, and get an inside look at STEM professions. 

Bookings are now open for Spring 2023.

Teacher Workshops and Externship Weeks

Teacher Externship Weeks and one-day Teacher Workshops give 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.

Check back in spring 2023 for details about the upcoming Teacher Externship Week for summer 2023

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.
