Since 1994, employees have brought their kids or other youngsters to the Lab as part of the national “Daughters and Sons to Work” program.
This year, 150 kids participated in numerous activities, including job shadowing, getting photographed as the “next Nobel Laureate,” creating a science biography, role playing as a STEM professional at the Lab, facility tours, a “science for social good” workshop, and career networking.
The event also included a new “Energy Innovation Gallery,” an interactive exhibit filled with energy technologies, diagnostic tools, and inventions used or produced at Berkeley Lab.
“Daughters & Sons to Work” was once again a huge success thanks to the effort of the Lab’s Workforce Development and Education program and nearly 100 volunteers. See more >
