Science on Saturday


Science on Saturday Logo

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. At these presentations, worksheets are made available for a deeper learning opportunity.

Below please find links to worksheets from the 2018 and 2019 Science on Saturday presentations. Within each worksheet is the link to the corresponding Science on Saturday video recorded at the Bankhead Theatre in Livermore and made available through University of California Television network. Worksheets are provided as a remote learning activity only; extra credit opportunities should be addressed with the student's teacher directly. The 2020 Science on Saturday presentations will be forthcoming.
