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.
Opening this fall
Sparking conversations about daily issues facing our communities.
This series on mental health was created through a partnership of the Greater Good Science Center, Bay Area Community Resources, and The Lawrence, with an aim of connecting youth with professionals and providing a resource for their community.
Bay Area teens share what mental health means to them, talk about what their experience of the pandemic has been, as well as discuss ways in which they can help improve mental health in their community.
“Our social well being was… put at risk. We were asked to socially distance and be physically apart from people that we love.”
