Outreach Committee


Outreach Committee’s mission is to connect Berkeley bioengineers with the greater community and help them improve their scientific communication and collaboration skills. The committee organizes school visits, plans events on Berkeley’s campus, and hosts talks online to educate future engineers about the field of bioengineering, empowering them to explore their interests further. The Outreach Committee’s audiences range from elementary schoolers to prospective Berkeley students, and members of the committee have a chance to form meaningful connections and grow as communicators and teachers.

In addition, the committee conducts workshops for Berkeley Bioengineering students, helping them develop presentation skills in a personalized, supportive environment. Members of outreach committee have the chance to be engaged in the larger community and proudly represent BioEHS and Berkeley engineering.

For Applicants

Welcome to the Outreach Committee, where we positively impact the bioengineering community through education! Our mission is to embrace our shared passion for bioengineering, giving back to the community and introducing the field to those unfamiliar with it. Throughout the semester, we’ll have lots of opportunities for volunteering and community engagement, connecting with high school and community college students in inspiring ways. Our workshops will be filled with fun and supportive activities that will boost your presentation, communication, and writing skills. These essential tools will empower you and your fellow candidates to share your exciting ideas with larger audiences. No worries if public speaking or presenting isn't your strong suit – we're here to support and encourage each other to get better! By the end of the semester, you'll feel equipped to not only light the way for future bioengineers but also to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. So, get ready to make new friends, learn, and grow together – we can't wait to welcome you with open arms!

BioE Day

BioE Day is an event hosted by Bioengineering Honor Society on UC Berkeley campus for high school scholars, especially those of underrepresented communities. Our goal is to present various interesting areas of bioengineering to help students answer the question "What is Bioengineering?"

There will be several fun bioengineering-related hands-on activities, tours of on-campus laboratories, and demos to capture the students' interest, and excite them for participating in BioEHSC™ or BioE in general.

The Third Annual Bioengineering Day will take place on November 16th, from 10 AM - 3:30 PM at Soda Hall. Lunch will be provided. Once we hit capacity, a waitlist will be applied, so make sure to RSVP!

BioEHS Blog

Our workshops assist members on how to efficiently break down scientific concepts and write about them. As a product, this blog is intended to expose those without a scientific background or formal training to current papers in the field of Bioengineering, and all articles are written by members of the Outreach Committee.
