The Livermore Lab Foundation has started high-value programs at Lawrence Livermore National laboratory this summer, creating opportunities for capable students from underserved populations, as well as from Livermore schools, to experience the world of science. These include undergraduate students from Florida A&M, an historically black university; from Cal State-East Bay, said to be the most diverse university campus in America; and from high schools in Livermore. While they are at the lab, the students will acquire knowledge and skills, including communications skills, that can serve them and the society they live in for years to come.

The Foundation’s activities are investments in the future. We need more activities like these. The students who benefit from their experience at LLNL may someday make contributions to national defense, to developing sustainable energy sources or reducing damage threatened by a rapidly changing climate. Perhaps they will pass their experiences on to others through teaching.
