Girls' Engineering Workshop
Twice a year, 100 middle school girls visit Lincoln Laboratory for the day to explore engineering. They explore the contents of cellphones, cameras, and clocks to learn about the inner workings of various types of electronic devices.
LL EduCATE (Lincoln Laboratory Courses for Accessible, Technical Education) visits underserved schools to introduce students to core engineering skills to see how STEM topics can apply to their own lives. Each course practices a hands-on engineering application.
LLCipher workshop is a one-week program that introduces high school students to cryptography, an approach to securing data.
LLRISE — Teacher Training
We offer high school physics and science teachers an opportunity to take part in the Laboratory's two-week radar workshop for high school seniors. The goal is to introduce teachers to a hands-on program that they could implement in their classes or as an afterschool program.
