Innovations & Inspirations is the primary fundraising event for The Lawrence Hall of Science, supporting our work to inspire and engage through science discovery and learning in ways that advance equity and opportunity.
Your support makes this possible!
The Lawrence Hall of Science works with world-class scientists, engineers, and educators to design and disseminate the most effective learning experiences in STEM fields: science, mathematics, engineering, and technology.
For more than 50 years, we have pushed the edges of science education, by questioning, learning, adapting, and always embodying the spirit of science. And we are far from done! After all, the work we do today isn’t about us. It’s about inspiring tomorrow’s thinkers, inventors, and change-makers. It’s about empowering educators with tools to improve science learning. And it’s about engaging diverse audiences so that the world of science looks like the world at large.
Science inspirations begin at The Lawrence. But there’s no telling how far they will go!
