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.
Through playful investigations of physical science and engineering, junior engineers will Build, Engineer, and Invent! Explore motion and force as you create pathways complete with ramps, drops, twists, and turns. Explore which shapes are the strongest by erecting giant structures and testing them for stability. We bring the building materials; you supply the creativity!
