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.
Dates: November 3, 10, 17 & December 1, 8, 15
Have you wondered why some groups of people or neighborhoods are more affected by COVID-19 than others? Or why health hazards are more concentrated in communities of color than in white neighborhoods? In this online afterschool program, you will explore environmental data and health indicators to understand how public health researchers draw connections between the two. By the end of the program, you will be able to answer this question: How does our environment make us healthy or sick? Each participant will have the opportunity to create a personalized multimedia data story that brings together science with social justice.
