Golden Gate Academy & UC Berkeley-the Lawerence Hall of Science
Have you ever wondered whether or not the air you breathe is healthy? How about the soil that accumulates on the bottoms of your shoes as you walk throughout your daily life? Is that soil healthy? The East Bay Academy for Young Scientists (EBAYS) summer program provides youth with opportunities to perform research studies in local communities that generate information which can be used to identify areas that contain unhealthy air and/or soil.
Following the completion of a given research project, youth will also prepare posters and/or other media presentations to share findings with public audiences. A stipend of $150 will be provided to youth enrolled in this camp.

The inaugural class of third and fourth graders at the school has posted extraordinary results on its first set of test scores.
In the spring of 2018, thousands of public school teachers walked out of their classrooms in a half-dozen states, protesting low salaries, rising class sizes and cuts to school budgets that have prompted most teachers to buy their own classroom supplies.
Additional strikes followed in 2019 in Los Angeles, Denver, and Oakland.
While these walkouts, which enjoyed much public support, were about more than teacher pay, stagnant teacher salaries were central issues.
