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.
Global Systems Science (GSS) is a set of curriculum materials designed for secondary schools. It focuses on societal issues that require science and systems approaches for full understanding. Twelve books, teacher guides, and software can support a 1- to 2-year integrated science course or supplement existing biology, physics, chemistry, Earth science, and environmental science courses.
GEMS is a leading resource for innovative science and mathematics education. Developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science, the public science education center at the University of California at Berkeley, and tested in thousands of classrooms nationwide, over 70 GEMS Teacher’s Guides and Handbooks offer a wide range of supplementary learning experiences for preschool through 8th grade.
Reflecting on Practice is a professional learning program meticulously designed to build participants’ understanding of, experiences with, and integration of best practices in informal science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning environments.
