It’s our 50th anniversary year, and you’re invited to celebrate with us! The Hall was founded in 1968 as part of UC Berkeley’s centennial celebration. It was named in honor of Ernest O. Lawrence, the University’s first Nobel Laureate. Since then, we’ve made it our mission to foster and inspire the learning of science and math for all.
You’re invited to join the party. Join us for a series of 50th Anniversary events:

Spring 2019: Innovations & Inspirations Benefit
Our third annual Innovations & Inspirations benefit will honor the Hall’s half-century of impact in the field of science education, and set the stage for future decades of innovation.
