Through the BLEND (Berkeley Lab Exploration in New Discoveries) program, Berkeley Lab partners with Bay Area groups to provide experiences for high school and post-secondary students and faculty. Experiences include visiting the Lab, touring facilities, taking part in STEM activities, meeting with scientists, and learning about careers.
The program is open to:
- High school students from schools and educational programs in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
- Underrepresented minority organizations focused on STEM education (e.g., Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement, National Society of Black Engineers, Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science, and National Association of Black Geoscientists chapters).
- Students, faculty, and staff at U.S. community colleges or universities.
