CEBAF's research and supporting technologies offer a rich environment for capturing the interest of and augmenting the experience of pre-college teachers and students. This paper describes some of the pre-college educational programs underway at CEBAF in collaboration with schools, colleges, and business partners. The BEAMS program -- Becoming Enthusiastic About Math and Science -- is highlighted. BEAMS brings entire classes of fifth and sixth grade students with their teachers into CEBAF for a full school week of special science and math activities. A pilot program involving seven inner-city classes was conducted in spring 1991. The 1991/1992 program is well underway with fifty classes scheduled to visit CEBAF.
