We strongly encourage college bound girls with a passion for discovery and innovation to become a part of the STEM community.

SAGE-S (Science Accelerating Girls' Engagement in STEM) is a one week long on-campus  residential summer camp for public high school students (age 14-17).  It is hosted by scientists and engineers who will share what everyday life is like in the STEM profession. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)

For 2020, SAGE-S Summer Camp will be VIRTUAL in August, PLUS a live event later in the year when the National Laboratories are once again open to the public.

This program aims to foster innovation, grow the STEM community, and engage intelligent, creative, and passionate young women in the everyday life of scientists and engineers at the National Laboratories.



SAGE-S is sponsored by the Moore Foundation, SLAC Director Chi-Chang Kao, and LBNL Director Mike Witherell. 

Executive support is from Bruce Dunham, Director of the Accelerator Directorate at SLAC, Michael Fazio, Director of Technology Innovation Directorate at SLAC,  and Horst Simon, Deputy Director for Research at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. 

Goals for the camp:

  •  To encourage college bound students with a passion for discovery and innovation to become a part of the STEM community
  •  To show that STEM fields offer a diverse set of opportunities: you can balance your interests in artistic expression, historic research, and creative writing with application of your logical thinking, analytic skills, and computational ability.

Goals for the students:

  • To learn about the STEM community and experience what an everyday life of a woman scientist or engineer is like
  • To see how STEM allows you to explore and balance many interests
  • To meet women in STEM at various stages of their career as well as meet and connect with other students with similar interests to become a part of the SAGE-S community.
