Here's a short video shot by the California Academy of Sciences's Rik Panganiban when the doors opened at their B.A.T.S. Teen Science Night on Friday, August 16, 2013. We hope to see some of these faces again at our next Teen Science Night on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at The Exploratorium!

A HUGE thanks to everyone who partnered with B.A.T.S. and all the Bay Area teens that attended our 2018 Teen Career Conference! Please enjoy these photos as a memento:

Bay Area Teen Science (B.A.T.S.) added 65 new photos from April 7 to the album: B.A.T.S. 2018 Teen Career Conference — at San Francisco Zoo.
April 7

On Saturday, April 7, 2018, B.A.T.S. welcomed teens from around the San Francisco Bay Area for our annual Teen Career Conference. Once again, our hosts at the Francisco Zoo provided not only the event space, but also a number of workshops and a great place to explore with friends after the event! We want to send them our deepest appreciation for being such great partners.

Additional thanks go to the San Francisco Unified School District’s Science Department for their continued support of this event, and for sending such generous volunteers.

We also want to give a big shout out to Deanna Doan and Nate Parsons from Planet for kicking the event off with their very informative and enjoyable keynote address, and for sticking around to engage with our attending youth and answer their questions throughout the event.

Finally, we couldn’t have done any of this without our other tremendous volunteer workshop leaders, including (in no particular order): UC Berkeley Office of Undergraduate Admissions Assistant Director Stephanie Eto; Professional College Admissions Advisor Sally Doane; Launch Studio; BEAM; the Echotronic team from the NeuroBat Lab, Skyline College, and TechHive; the Las Positas College Biology Club; and UC Berkeley's Cal Space Technologies And Rocketry (aka CalSTAR) team. You are all some of our most favorite people and we can’t thank you enough!

Enjoy the photos below, and we hope to have some of you back again next year : )

Announcing New Summer Opportunities from SE3D

SE3D is a newly emerging leader in the field of bioprinting and funded by the National Science Foundation. SE3D also focuses on bringing bioprinting technology into the hands of Bay Area students.

This summer they are offering 3 very unique summer research experiences in bioprinting and 3D printing technology for high school students who are interested in biomedical sciences. Opportunities include:


(1) In partnership with the Lawrence Hall of Science, students can take part in a one-week program in Bioprinting Technology from Jul 30-Aug 3. For more info, please check out the LHS website and register with them directly at…/camps_…/summer_camps

(2) The Biomedical Device Innovation Bootcamp trains students to use 3D printing tools to prototype biomedical devices and learn how to pitch in a "shark-tank" style their ideas and inventions. This camp program will be held at in Oakland at Circuit Launch from Jun 25-29. To learn more about this camp, check out the flyer at…/0b16db_0e669bd7676e4a75b9f7087…

(3) The final camp is a Bioprinting Research Immersion Camp for those who want to do research, learn and explore possibilities with bioprinting technology. This camp runs at Circuit Launch from Jul 16-20th. To learn more, see the flyer at…/0b16db_98166883f2c746389ce7f82…

The registration form for the last two summer programs above is at…/1FAIpQLScMGQfUjRmiDxB1yx…/viewform
