Our out-of-school science programs nurture the potential scientist in everyone. They illustrate how science shapes daily life, and they reinforce concepts taught in school.
Programs and Partnerships
AfterSchool KidzScience™ kits are designed specifically for use in out-of-school settings by children in grades 3–5. They are easy to use and come with clear, step-by-step instructions.
The Hall has teamed up with the Maker Movement. Together we’re inspiring young people to develop their own project ideas and providing them with mentors to help them work on engineering, art, and science projects.
Our wide variety of workshops and science shows can be taken to afterschool sites, or groups can come to the Hall. These interactive, hands-on science and math programs are fun, stimulating, and educational.
Get tools and resources to engage youth in exciting scientific investigations using everyday materials. Improve your ability to teach science in out-of-school settings.
Connect with people and programs in out-of-school science. This network of organizations and individuals supports advocacy efforts nationally and internationally.
Lawrence Hall of Science at University of California, Berkeley is proud to be partnering with the National Girls Collaborative Project as its California hub—California Girls in STEM (CalGirlS).
