Closed Thursday, 11/25
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.
Three week IN PERSON Camp at The Lawrence
Nature CraftAre you ready to be inspired by nature? In this program, you will use a scientific lens to explore the patterns in nature, get new ideas, and create art of your own from natural materials. You will explore the colors, shapes, and structures of living and non-living things. Each day will include time outdoors for observations, scientific investigation, and creative art and craft projects. Campers will gain skills to discover the natural world up close through noticing, wondering, and making connections.
Moons of JupiterAre you curious about space travel in our Solar System? In this program, you will design a spacecraft to land on and explore one of Jupiter’s moons! Together we will design, build, and test the launch rocket, landing system, and rover for exploring its surface while we brave the erupting volcanoes or drill into Ganymede’s underground ocean. You will gain a deeper understanding of our Solar System, Jupiter and its moons, spacecraft engineering, and more. This program includes visits to museum exhibits.
Arcade MakersAre you ready to “level up”? In this program, you will design and build classic, non-electronic, arcade games. Together, we will investigate how things roll, fly, slide, collide, and more. Each day you will use your ingenuity to design, build, and test creative contraptions using a variety of materials. You will gain a better understanding of force, trajectory, and motion, as well as how to innovate through the engineering design process. Join us to create and play in our very own arcade full of games!
