Bring your students to The Lawrence, or bring our inquiry-based science programs to you.
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.
For over 50 years, The Lawrence Hall of Science has been at the forefront of science education. As part of the University of California, Berkeley, we work with scientists, engineers, and educators to design the most effective learning experiences. We strive to transform the world of STEM, infusing these fields with diverse perspectives and innovative minds.
The Lawrence Hall of Science is one of the nation’s few science centers that is part of a top-tier, public research university. Learn more about the work we do and the people who make it happen.
The Lawrence Hall of Science acknowledges that our building, as part of the UC Berkeley campus, sits on the territory of xučyun (Huichin), the ancestral and unceded land of the Chochenyo speaking Ohlone people, the successors of the sovereign Verona Band of Alameda County.
We recognize that every member of the Berkeley community has, and continues to benefit from, the use and occupation of this land, since the institution’s founding in 1868. Consistent with our values of community, inclusion, and diversity, we have a responsibility to acknowledge and make visible the university’s relationship to Native peoples. As members of the Berkeley community, it is vitally important that we not only recognize the history of the land on which we stand but also, we recognize that the Muwekma Ohlone people are alive and flourishing members of the Berkeley and broader Bay Area communities today.
Life-changing learning experiences don’t just happen—they’re made. By supporting The Lawrence Hall of Science, you’re helping further our work of inspiring tomorrow’s diverse thinkers, inventors, and change-makers.
From staff to students to volunteers, our team is the heart of The Lawrence Hall of Science. Join us and channel your talent and passion into creating eye-opening learning experiences for others.
