Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory recognizes the importance of close relationships with its surrounding communities. This includes elected officials, local community leaders, neighbors, school districts, educators, civic organizations, and other citizens groups.

Through these relationships, Community & Education Programs seeks to foster greater public awareness of Laboratory programs, scientific and technological achievements, educational opportunities, and operations.

We manage the Laboratory’s Discovery Center, Community Tour Program, K-12 Educational Outreach, Environmental Community Relations and Speaker’s Bureau. We also provide assistance to community members wanting information about LLNL and publish a quarterly community newsletter, Discover LLNL.
