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 in Winter
From the native vegetation to a range of guided and self-driven experiences, The Robert and Elizabeth Karplus Outdoor Nature Lab provides a unique space where all visitors will make close observations of, and deepen their connection with, the natural environment. Visitors will be able to explore larger environmental issues, such as invasive species, climate change, air quality, and the importance of pollinators.

These experiences not only will nurture a scientific mindset, but will also spark connections to environmental issues ranging from invasive species and bee die-offs to individual actions that can positively impact our natural resources.
