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.
Science teachers and administrators from grades pre-K through 8 are gathering for a two-day virtual expedition like no other. Join us, either day or both. Huddle ’round the monitor as science education experts share their secrets. And come away prepared to teach hands-on science as never before. Workshop: All Professional Development: FOSS P.D.
