Event Info

We will be celebrating our 10th annual Nuclear Science Day for Scouts event at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on Saturday, March 21, 2020. This full-day event is designed for Girl Scouts and BSA youths in grades 8 or higher. There is no cost to attend.

Download our event flyer for more information.

Troop leaders or volunteers should coordinate the registration for their troops. We strongly discourage scouts from registering individually. Individual scouts who want to participate in this event MUST coordinate their registration with their Troops, as insurance is covered by BSA and GS for official outings.

To register for the event, please go to the event registration form here. The troop registration deadline is 5:00 PM (Pacific Time) on February 21, 2020. A notification will be sent to the troop that have been accepted to the event during the week of February 24, 2020.

Event-Patch Design Competition

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Nuclear Science Day for Scouts, we are holding an event-patch design competition for youth participants. The winning design, which will reflect the theme "Nuclear Science Around Us," will be made into patches and distributed to all event participants. The winner will secure 10 confirmed slots for his/her troop at this year’s event, and will additionally receive a full collection of the event patches since the inaugural event in 2011. The full collection and the description of each design can be found here.

Details of the event-patch design competition and the entry form can be downloaded here. The deadline for the event-patch design competition is 4:00 PM (Pacific Time) on February 14, 2020. Submissions are made via email to NuclearScienceDay@lbl.gov. The winner will be notified by email no later than February 29, 2020.
