Lab Sponsors Science Workshops in All Berkeley Elementary Schools

In conjunction with UC Berkeley, Berkeley Lab donated $5,000 to Community Resources for Science, a local non-profit that bridges the gap between the expertise of scientists and the needs of Berkeley elementary schools for more in-class science education. This year the group will recruit, train and deploy 200 scientist volunteers from all UC Berkeley science departments to do hands-on lessons in all of Berkeley’s public elementary schools. This initiative will involve approximately 2,100 Berkeley elementary school students in “hands on” science experiences. Lab Government & Community Relations Representative Armando Viramontes presented the donation.
