Our Story

Berkeley Engineers and Mentors, or BEAM for short, is a group of UC Berkeley students passionate about sharing their love for science and engineering with the local community. We work with 18 local schools bringing engaging STEM-themed after school programs to children.

Our Personality

The BEAM team is a group of curious minds. STEM background or not, mentors love to learn and want to share this love to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.


BEAMers have energy. Introvert or extrovert, our passion for STEM challenges us to move out of our comfort zone and energize a classroom.


But the most important quality a BEAM mentor has is heart, which makes BEAM truly a family and helps us make meaningful connections with our students.
