Science and Technology Highlights

Science on Saturday is a series of science lectures for middle and high school students. Each topic highlights cutting-edge science occurring at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The talks are presented by LLNL scientists in collaboration with local area high school science teachers. These presentations are offered in several locations. Admission is free of charge. Seating is on a first-come first-served basis. Location: Bankhead Theater (2400 First St, Livermore, CA 94550) Two Presentations: 9:30 AM & 11:15 AM; Download Flyer
