Science Teacher and Researcher (STAR)
LLNL is one of several federally funded research centers collaborating with CSU Cal Poly Center for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education (CESaME) to provide pre-service and early-career science teachers with an nine-week, paid mentored research internship. This research experience encourages science majors to pursue careers in science teaching by fostering their professional identity as both a scientists and science educator. Additional details and registration information are available on the STAR Website.
LLNL/LPC Science & Engineering Seminar Series
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Las Positas College Science and Engineering Seminar Series provides LLNL scientists and engineers a forum to share basic and applied research with LPC students and faculty. The presentations focus on how science is applied to solve problems from theory to practice.
Four, 45 minute multidisciplinary seminars are held each year: two in the Fall and two in the Spring. Following each presentation, there is a 30 minute informal discussion where students and faculty can ask questions about topics of interest such as research directions and career projections.
Admission is free and seating is first come-first serve.
San Joaquin Expanding Your Horizons (SJEYH)
Tri-Valley Expanding Your Horizoon (TVEYH)
The Expanding Your Horizons program is an annual conference specially designed for 6th through 12th grade girls to encourage them to consider education and career options in science and mathematics. LLNL partners with both the San Joaquin EYH and Tri-Valley EYH events to provide this hands-on, learning experience to the greater regional community. About 500 girls attend each event. Girls spend the day learning about careers in science and math.
