We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
At The Lawrence Hall of Science, discovery runs through everything we do. We foster scientific exploration with a focus on equitable learning experiences. Whether we’re designing curriculum, engaging learners, or empowering educators, we believe in the transformative power of learning made fun: when “ha ha” moments become “aha!” moments.
