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.
Welcome to the world of phenomenal physics! In this lab, you will be introduced to the forces of physics – the basic principles that govern our physical world. As a physicist, you will observe, ask, and experiment on topics ranging from electricity and magnetism to sound and fluid dynamics. What will you discover about these forces?
