Science on Screen is a science education program aimed at middle, high school, and college students. It presents lectures that highlight science conducted at LLNL paired with a popular feature film relevant to that science. The series is held at the State Theatre of Modesto, recipient of a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. In collaboration with the Coolidge Corner Theatre, the Science on Screen grant initiative program brings scientific presentations and films to cinemas nationwide.
