The Teacher Research Academies
The Teacher Research Academy (TRA) is a professional development program where middle school, high school, and community college science faculty add to their science content knowledge and skills. This instruction is offered in a continuum progressing teachers from novice to mastery in four content areas that reflect the "cutting-edge" science found at LLNL. These content areas are Fusion and Astrophysics, Biotechnology, Environment and Energy Technologies, and Biophotonics. This instruction provides teachers a context to understand how this science is used to solve real, large-scale problems.

Science on Saturday is a series of free lectures and demonstrations intended for middle and high school students and teachers. The topics are selected from the forefront of LLNL science and technology research in a variety of disciplines. Lectures are held in Livermore, Tracy and at CSU East Bay.
