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.
Based at the Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley, the East Bay Academy for Young Scientists (EBAYS) serves youth […]

What stars can you see in the sky this time of year? What shapes and stories can you imagine among them? We will give you a star map and teach you to find constellations, the starry patterns of the night sky. We might also find planets, star clusters, and other hidden treasures of the night sky. We will even imagine that we are flying away from Earth to make observations from far off in space.
You know that the Solar System is big. Is a galaxy bigger? How much bigger? How do astronomers measure how big and how far away the Moon or a star or a galaxy is? We will actively explore these questions, and we’ll take a tour from Earth to the farthest edge of the observable Universe.
Join us in our commitment to working toward a future in which every young person has access to engaging and […]

The Mystery: Fish and other wildlife are dying. The Investigation: Perform chemical and biological tests to determine what could be causing the situation. Intriguing hands-on test stations await as you gather clues, analyze data, and research the history of the area to become an environmental detective. The mystery continues back in the classroom, as teachers choose a follow-up activity from the packet provided, and as students pool their results and attempt to solve the mystery.
Step into the shoes of an engineer as you Build, Engineer, and Invent! This hands-on design challenge experience brings out the engineer in everyone. Explore building in two and three dimensions while discovering the design properties involved in constructing sturdy structures, bridges, roller coasters, and more! We bring the building materials; you supply the creativity!
What happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar in a gigantic test tube…and then try to contain it? What sub-zero substance has the ability to shrink an inflated balloon down to nothing, or even make a plant as delicate as glass? What is dry-ice and what does it do?! Discover the answer to these questions, and more, through the phase-changing, mind-bending world of solids, liquids, and gases!
Through playful investigations of physical science and engineering, junior engineers will Build, Engineer, and Invent! Explore motion and force as you create pathways complete with ramps, drops, twists, and turns. Explore which shapes are the strongest by erecting giant structures and testing them for stability. We bring the building materials; you supply the creativity!
