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.
Mars, our neighboring planet, is both a familiar and alien world that has intrigued us for eons. Join us for an exploration of its landscape, history, and mysteries that today’s scientists are trying to solve. We’ll review the history of global missions to Mars – landers, flybys, orbiters and rovers…and learn how to locate Mars in our own night sky.
Learn how to find constellations in the night sky! This interactive show gives you a preview of tonight’s actual Bay Area skies, and what you’ll find where. What stories do the stars tell us and how do they look different around the galaxy? Blast off with us!
