Our Beam YOUTH Program works with our partner schools to provide an intensive apprenticeship experience to over 100 high school students per year. Beam Apprentices visit Beam Center two or more times a week for 15 weeks, working closely with engineers and artists to create a large-scale collaborative project. Past apprenticeship projects include: The Personal Planetarium, a welded-steel geodesic dome that maps the cosmos, and Current Translation, a twelve foot balancing sculpture with multi-media elements. In addition to learning technical skills, students also learn how to lead educational workshops for younger children. Apprentices who complete the program are eligible for paid summer jobs at community day camp and afterschool programs through a partnership with ExpandEd Options.
