For the fourth time, the Lawrence Hall of Science brought hands-on science activities to the White House Easter Egg Roll. Staff from the Hall joined with volunteers from AAAS, ASTC, and the White House to design paper-bag kites and bunny copters which demonstrate movement. In the spirit of First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" campaign, thousands of families enjoyed these activities on the South Lawn.

At the 2012 East Bay Mini Maker Faire, the Hall joined with makers from all over the East Bay to celebrate learning and doing—not the finished and perfect end product. At our booth, we designed hydraulic systems with simple items like syringes, surgical tubing, wood, or cardboard to build levers and hydraulics.
