About BEAM and FAQs

What is BEAM? What does BEAM do?

BEAM (Bruins Encouraging Active Minds) brings hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities to underserved K-8 schools across Los Angeles. Our program aims to improve student attitudes toward STEM. Every week, we visit classes after school to perform experiments and give lessons covering various topics like biology, chemistry, or physics. Our members represent a variety of majors, from biology to computer science to English.
