The Lawrence Hall of Science is dedicated to preparing youth to face the challenges of today and to inspire them to improve tomorrow.
One such challenge: feeding a hungry world.
Funds raised this evening will help sponsor exhibits and programs at The Lawrence on the future of food, showcasing the many voices contributing to global food solutions, from farms, laboratories, and communities. Our exploration of the future of food will serve as a model for exhibitions yet to come that will explore other STEM issues with global implications.
