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.
We are open extra days during Thanksgiving week. Explore our latest exhibits and old favorites over the holiday week. Come visit us on Monday, 11/22; Tuesday, 11/23; Wednesday, 11/24; and Friday, 11/26. And, of course, we’re always open on the weekend!
