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.
With our interactive apps and activities, learners of all ages can unlock science concepts anytime, anywhere. Explore the surface of the sun from your living room. Help a 3-eyed monster stay healthy. Build a lung from an empty bottle. All of our apps and activities are hands-on and designed to foster learning in dynamic ways—they’re where science clicks.
Feel the power of our science apps! Play Space Chef to make nutritious meals in space or Monster Heart Medic to save Ragnar through healthy living. Learn about living with diabetes with I Got This. Investigate the Sun with DIY Sun Science, the Human Body with DIY Human Body, nanotechnology with DIY Nano, and lakes and freshwater ecosystems with DIY Lake Science.
