Activities and Discussions

Throughout the year, the Lawrence Hall of Science offers special events to members, donors, and the general public. From our annual spring Open House on Cal Day, to member openings, to lectures, there's plenty of activity inside.

Upcoming Events

Members-Only Exhibit Opening

Design Quest
Saturday, June 1, 2013
9:00–10:00 a.m.

The Design Quest exhibit inspires kids to come up with their own ideas, build prototypes, and then test their designs in hands-on exhibits including Make Station, Build A Bridge, Stop-Motion Stories, and more. Before this exhibit opens to the public, be the first to start building the inventions of the future. Make a stop-motion animation and devise your own scribbling machine to take home.

In conjunction with the exhibition opening, Sponsor, Associate, and Partners In Science members are invited to enjoy breakfast together and get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Design Quest from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. Please check in at the Front Desk.
