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.
Applies professional concepts to perform moderate financial and resource analysis to understand past performance and determine present and future performance […]
Plans, schedules, and implements annual fundraising projects and programs, including the Annual Fund, online giving opportunities such as The BIG GIVE and crowdfunding campaigns, as well as an annual calendar of donor cultivation and solicitation events. Ensures that predetermined fundraising goals are met. Supports the Director and Deputy Director in stewardship of major gifts and ongoing donor relations. Coordinates activities closely with Lawrence Hall of Science Membership and Marketing Departments to maximize engagement across various constituent groups, identify and engage potential donors, and increase the base of support for Lawrence Hall of Science.

Creativity combined with engineering helps us prepare for the future by developing inventions that enable us to both survive and thrive in environments like space, the deep ocean, and our ever-changing Earth.
Engineers use their knowledge of air to do things like land safely with a parachute, fly planes, stabilize helicopters, and much more. Can you do the same with our wind tubes and hover table?
Engineers, especially those in the Bay Area, are working toward sustainable energy solutions by using the power of the wind to generate electricity. The need for wind power is continually growing.
Launching a rocket into space is a difficult task because of various factors. The efficiency, reliability, and safety of a rocket all depend on the quality of engineering design.
Design, build, and test your own earthquake-safe structures. Explore how buildings behave when the earth starts to shake, and how engineers use science to build safer homes & offices.
