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.
Residential environmental education (EE) programs provide highly memorable, immersive learning experiences for large numbers of students, offering a tremendous opportunity for improving their understanding of the natural world. These programs are typically staffed by young and enthusiastic teacher/naturalists who can benefit from high-quality professional development. The BEETLES project has created a series of professional development modules and videos for EE program leaders to use with their staff. The project also has gathered, refined, and developed effective activities and resources from across the field for free online distribution.
