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.
We learn from our community. Our advisors’ passion for science education, professional expertise in diverse fields, and knowledge of the communities we serve, help us carry out our mission.
Our Advisory Council is composed of community members who are extraordinarily dedicated to our mission. Each of our Advisory Council members brings a unique set of experiences, skills and relationships that enhances and improves our ability to support high quality science education everywhere. We applaud and thank the members of our Advisory Council, past and present, for their outstanding work on behalf of the Lawrence Hall of Science.
