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.
Q: Can I sign my child up for just one week of in-person camp?
A: For grades PreK-9, unfortunately no. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are having elementary grade campers commit to a three-week session of camp. The campers will be with the same pod of children and staff for the entire three-week period, with no mixing between pods. We believe this is the best way to keep the children and our staff as safe as possible.
Q: Will The Lawrence be open to the public during camp time?
A: At this time we do not know whether The Lawrence will be open to the public during Summer Camp. We are working on several scenarios that include being open to the public in some capacity, but all scenarios include provisions for keeping campers and general public visitors separate. We will provide more detailed information about how we will manage this situation once we have confirmation regarding our reopening plans.
Q: When and where do I drop off my child?
A: Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. You may drop off your child starting at 8:45 a.m. and must pick them up by 4:15 p.m. each day. The drop-off location will be communicated to you in a welcome email the week before camp starts.
Q: Can I sign my child up for Extended Day?
A: Unfortunately no, we are not offering Extended Day this year due to the pandemic.
