Live Science

Live Science (aimed at grades 6-12) 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. Most episodes feature conversations with scientists as well as interactive activities to follow along with at home. These programs are open to the public and recorded for later viewing.

This program is geared for a middle and high school audience (After School Science Hour offers more introductory and demonstration-based explorations for elementary school students), but are open to all and recorded for later viewing.

Check out upcoming and past events below, and join our student or educator newsletters to be the first to hear about each month's subject!

How do scientists know what they know about climate change and the behavior of carbon on earth? Understanding these intricate systems requires knowing where carbon comes from and how it moves, which drives scientists to explore the Amazon, simulate with supercomputers, and heed the long-suppressed knowledge of Indigenous communities.

Join us for our next Live Science on January 21st at 3pm PT to hear from researchers at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley who study these phenomena, and gain a better understanding of one of earth's most important cycles.
