Events from the Hall

On top of all the learning and fun we offer every day, events are even more great reasons to visit Lawrence Hall of science all year and become a Hall member. Bring your family, friends, and students to our maker events, special exhibit happenings, holiday science parties, trips to other UC Berkeley locales and much more.
