Our Members are a vital part of The Lawrence family. We depend on memberships, contributions, and earned revenue to make possible our exhibits and programs, to help us serve schools and the broader community, and to design new approaches to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning such as our new Online Science Discovery Camps. Our Members are essential to helping us continue this transformative work during these challenging times.

We are grateful for your support and encourage you to take advantage of our online offerings, community events, and Members-only newsletter.
