Members of the group actively volunteer in two STEM role model programs: Bay Area Scientists in Schools (BASIS) and Be A Scientist (BAS). Both programs are led by Community Resources for Science (CRS), an organization that involves 600+ UC Berkeley graduate students, post-docs, and 3rd/4th year undergraduates.
Through BASIS, scientists and engineers create and teach fun and hands-on lessons at public elementary schools in Berkeley, Oakland, Richmond, and Pinole.
BAS mentors guide and support a group of 7th graders over the course of six weeks, enabling each student to design, carry out, and report on their own independent scientific investigations.
Some photos from Martin Lichtenthaler's engagement with BAS, Mary Garner's participation in the Science Olympiad (March 2017) as well as Nick Settineri’s and Trevor Lohrey’s engagement with BASIS are shown here.
