Science on Saturday

Science on Saturday is a series of science lectures for middle and high school students. Each topic highlights cutting-edge research at LLNL. Worksheets will be made available at the presentations for extra credit opportunities which should be addressed with the student's teacher directly.

The 2023 Science on Saturday series, “70 Years of Science”, will highlight research areas ongoing at the Laboratory for the past seventy years. This year Science on Saturday has a new location – the campus of Las Positas College. Each hour-long presentation will begin at 10 a.m. with campus tours available after the talks each Saturday. Registration is required. Presentation and parking are free.
