The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
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.
On top of all the learning and fun we offer every day, events are even more great reasons to visit Lawrence Hall of science all year and become a member of The Lawrence. Bring your family, friends, and students to our maker events, special exhibit happenings, holiday science parties, trips to other UC Berkeley locales and much more.
Learn to make your own ice cream treat…with science!
From rollers to resistors, from magnets to mirrors, our tabletop demonstrations help you explore the forces of motion and energy of our universe.
Explore everyday science at Science@Stockmen’s Park, a free, accessible monthly outdoor event for children, teens, and adults. As part of this month’s Science of the Human Body event, The Lawrence-On-the-Go will present our Lights! Optics! Action! activity.
Recent advances in sequencing DNA have opened up new opportunities to use genetic data to improve our understanding of human history and evolution. For example, genetic data can be used to reconstruct migration patterns, understand how genomes change across different species or lineages, and understand how our evolutionary history impacts disease and adaptation. To illustrate this work, Dr. Priya Moorjani, Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Molecular and Cell Biology and Center of Computational Biology, will discuss two ongoing projects.
Look carefully… Six legs? Eight legs? Fourteen? Let’s observe bugs up close and see what we can learn!
Antes de haberse mudado a Estados Unidos, Andrea Naranjo Soledad, estudiante de doctorado en la Universidad de California, Berkeley, vivió en Bogotá, Colombia, donde vio a muchas comunidades viviendo con aire y agua contaminada, falta de alimentos, y con falta de instalaciones sanitarias. Esto la motivó a encontrar formas de ayudar a las comunidades de bajos recursos a tener acceso al agua potable. En esta presentación, ella nos compartirá cómo sus experiencias junto con el apoyo de su comunidad la ayudaron a entrar al programa de doctorado en UC Berkeley.
Enriching, fun, and engaging science activities featuring a range of topics across science, technology, engineering, and mathematics!
