The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
The Lawrence is getting ready to re-open. We’ll see you on October 30th!
For over 50 years, The Lawrence Hall of Science has been at the forefront of science education.
On a visit to The Lawrence, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
At The Lawrence Hall of Science, discovery runs through everything we do. We foster scientific exploration with a focus on equitable learning experiences. Whether we’re designing curriculum, engaging learners, or empowering educators, we believe in the transformative power of learning made fun: when “ha ha” moments become “aha!” moments.
The Lawrence Hall of Science is located at:1 Centennial DriveBerkeley, CA 94720
