Workforce Development

The Office of Science Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists program continues the Department’s long-standing role of training young scientists, engineers and technicians in the scientifically and technically advanced environment of our National Laboratories.   The Program supports three science, technology and workforce development subprograms: 1) Undergraduate Internships, for undergraduate students wishing to enter science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), as well as with science and math teaching careers; 2) Graduate/Faculty Fellowships for STEM teachers and faculty; and 3) Pre-College Activities for middle and high school students such as the National Science Bowl.  Each of the subprograms targets a different group of students and teachers to attract as broad a range of participants to the programs and to expand the pipeline of students who can enter the STEM workforce.  In this fashion, the subprograms use our National Laboratories to meet the demand for a well-trained scientific and technical workforce, including those teachers that help spawn that workforce.
