Who Can Join

We welcome and train college students of ALL MAJORS to be effective mentors, role models, and leaders in their community. We also welcome teachers of Bay Area schools to reach out to us and bring in a new slice of science exploration.


Reinventing science. Hands-on, exciting, and fun.

We design our own lessons to be visually and kinesthetically engaging to stimulate our students' creativity, critical thinking, and curiosity.

120 mentors. 15 schools. 1 mission.

Our hundred-strong organization is comprised of UC Berkeley students of all disciplines and backgrounds. We travel weekly to elementary, middle, and high schools in the East Bay. Learn more about which schools we are involved with, and how to bring BEAM to a classroom near you.


Bringing project-based learning to classrooms. And your home.

We champion educational resources for not only the classroom but the community as well. All our lessons are posted online for free use, and strive to foster interest in STEM through outreach events.
