We will be hosting a "Girls Get to Know Nuclear" workshop for Girl Scout Troop Leaders on March 23rd FROM 5-7pm at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Troop Leaders will have an opportunity to review the nuclear science material required for troops to earn the "Get to Know Nuclear" patch as part of the event. No background in nuclear science required. Register for the workshop here.

Attendance is limited by the size of our facilities.  Registration will be handled by a random draw if the demand exceeds our capacity.

Any LBNL employees can register to help with this event by signing up at this web page.

This event is sponsored by the following LBNL units: Nuclear Science Division, Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics Division, and the Workforce Development & Education.  We have received supplemental funding from the Northern California Chapter of the Health Physics Society and the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation.
