Making an Impact in our Community
Community service and educational outreach are important to us. Our outreach programs are motivated by the desire of our employees to help people in need and to encourage students' interest and participation in engineering and science.
Beaver Works Summer Institute
The Beaver Works Summer Institute is a transformational STEM experience, using project-based, workshop-style programs for rising high school seniors. We also work with public schools and teachers conducting STEM courses for their students.
G.I.R.L. - Girls' Innovation Research Lab
G.I.R.L. provides hands-on activities to make electronics and programming accessible to middle school girls.
Girls Who Build Cameras ─ Online Course
The Girls Who Build Cameras course is an introduction to camera physics and technology.
Girls Who Build Wearable Technology ─ Online Course
The Girls Who Build Wearable Technology online course guides students on how to use computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering to make their own wearable technology.
Internships via AFCEA
The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) arranges internships for 40 high school seniors interested in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Lincoln Laboratory selects two students to do hands-on, project-related work with a mentor.
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.
Lincoln Laboratory Radar Introduction for Student Engineers (LLRISE) is a two-week radar workshop for rising high school seniors.
Radar: Graduate Level — Online Course
The Radar Systems Engineering course (video, audio, screen-captured PowerPoint slides, and separate pdf slides) has been developed as an introductory course in radar systems for first-year graduate students, advanced senior undergraduates, or professionals new to radar.
Robotics: FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC)
FIRST Tech Challenge is a national robotics program for students in grades 7–12 who are interested in building and programming their own robot from a kit and then testing it in competition against other teams.
