Career Talks for Young Scientists – February 25, 2021

At Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, LBNL Next hosts K-12 Education and Outreach programs to cultivate the next generation in STEM. We’re hosting a series of career talks to inspire and encourage students to start careers in STEM fields.

Each session, we will be joined by Berkeley Lab staff, Bay Area professionals, and other guest experts to talk about their careers and how they got there. This is a great opportunity to hear about new career options as well as ask questions directly to top professionals.

Sessions will be themed in order to highlight different facets of STEM. Check out the upcoming schedule below, or visit our website for more details on themes and speakers. This event page will be updated prior to each event to include short bios of guest speakers.
