LIVERMORE -- More than 80 current and up-and-coming science teachers will hold their own show-and-tell about what they did this summer.

The public is invited to view their research, conducted alongside scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, at a poster session from 1 to 4:15 p.m. Friday in the Cresta Blanca Room at the Robert Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Ave.

Thirty of the teachers, all hailing from across California and Hawaii, have been working at the laboratory for the past eight weeks. They participated in one of three teacher development programs: Teacher Research Academy, Department of Energy Academies Creating Teacher Scientists (ACTS), and Science Teacher and Researchers (STAR).

These programs allow middle school and high school science teachers to develop and maintain mastery in their fields.

The poster session, which is open to the public free of charge, is hosted by the California State University system, the Science Teacher and Researcher (STAR) program, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and the Science Education Program.
