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.
This engaging 24-page book for young readers tells the story of 4th graders who build a robot to clean up their Razzle-Dazzle Robot Club workshop. When it doesn’t work as expected, they visit their local university where they discover new research in Artificial Intelligence and robot learning. The book introduces readers to cutting-edge robotics and AI in a highly accessible way and models authentic engineering practices such as iterative design, testing, and learning through failure. With a diverse cast of characters and colorful, humorous illustrations, How to Train Your Robot will inspire girls and members of other under-represented groups to explore engineering, robotics, and coding for themselves.
