Parents

In BEAM, your child will be introduced to the world of engineering through hands-on activities and challenges.
Our goal is to introduce your child and his/her classmates to engineering, science and technology concepts. The BEAM program is a year-long commitment between our mentors and your child. We will hold a 5-week program this fall quarter, and we will return for additional programs in the winter and spring quarters. Your child will participate in weekly sessions where he or she will work on hands-on projects to learn science and engineering concepts through experimentation and design. He or she will work closely with current UCLA students who will act as mentors. We encourage you to visit the program in action at your child’s school and see your child take on the role of a scientist. 
 
If you have any questions or concerns about your student’s participation in our after school program, please contact us by emailing uclabeam@ucla.edu or contacting your child’s school.
