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.
Share your enthusiasm for science and spark the imagination of visiting families and schoolchildren.
The application period for the Teen Volunteer Program is temporarily closed, due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please check back on this page regularly for upcoming teen applications and opportunities.
The Lawrence Hall of Science offers a fun, dynamic program for teens only. All teens enter the program in May, volunteering in various capacities for the summer or throughout the year. This is a great way for them to fulfill community service requirements, gain job skills, and learn about communicating science to the public. Volunteering here will give teens great experiences in public speaking, educational programs, customer service, and general job skills. Volunteers will work with staff at The Lawrence, with UC Berkeley college interns, and with other teens from all around the Bay Area.
Volunteer work will include:
Our next adult volunteer orientation is Saturday, November 6th, 11:00 a.m.–1:30 p.m. Sign up today to attend the upcoming orientation.
