Bring Your Students to the Hall
On a visit to the Hall, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day—exploring Earth and space, the nanoscale, and force and motion. Our featured exhibits, 3D films, and workshops, tailored for your class level, enhance your students' experience.
Individual Experiences for Youth
Youth get inspired as they explore, build, and create with new friends and cool tools! Our Camps and Classes are a great place to spend winter breaks, summer breaks, or anytime in between.
Parties and Rentals
Celebrate your birthday or any other occasion by treating friends to a special day at the Hall. Discover our hands-on exhibits, explore the activities in the labs, design something new, and play in our outdoor science park overlooking the entire SF Bay. Increase the fun by adding in a science film or planetarium show or an hour long science workshop featuring live animal experience or invention challenges.
Business meetings, office parties, weddings, and reunions are better at the Lawrence Hall of Science. Treat your guests to a panoramic Bay view, dynamic science exhibits, and friendly services.
