High School Programs

Our high school programs are geared towards college and career preparation. We offer lab visits, summer camps, student internships, and more. Sign up for our student newsletter to be included in program announcements taking place over the next year.

The Berkeley Lab Director’s Apprenticeship Program (BLDAP) is a project based summer program that seeks to remove systemic barriers to STEM, such as a lack of access to professional networks and work-based opportunities, by providing strong connections to the scientific community at Berkeley Lab.

Experiences in Research are summer internships for students to gain hands-on experience with professionals at Berkeley Lab. Students will be working directly on cutting edge projects alongside experts in STEM. Projects will be focused around different aspects of STEM such as administration, communications, experimental research, and more.

Science Accelerating Girls' Engagement in STEM (SAGE-S) is a week long summer camp for high school students. This program aims to foster innovation, grow the STEM community, and engage intelligent, creative, and passionate young women in the everyday life of scientists and engineers at National Laboratories.
