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.
The Lawrence Hall of Science is temporarily closed to the public due to the Bay Area Shelter-in-Place order to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
We promise to keep you informed about any new developments through our website, social media and email. We continue to plan for programs, camps, and exhibits for the rest of the year, and are excited to share these experiences with you. Staff are also taking care of the animals in the Animal Discovery Room. We are exploring ways to bring our engaging programs and activities to you online, so please stay tuned for more information.
We hope you will continue to do what you can to stop the spread of this illness by following best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
We look forward to seeing you and your family when we reopen.
