The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
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.
The Argumentation Toolkit is a collection of resources designed to help teachers understand and teach scientific argumentation. The Argumentation Toolkit website includes videos and other resources to support teachers in successfully integrating argumentation into science lessons.
Since 1983, BAMP has offered inspiring professional learning opportunities for K-12 mathematics teachers, instructional coaches, and administrators in Alameda, Contra Costa,, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Solano, and Sonoma counties.
Focused on district capacity-building, BaySci is committed to improving science education through the development of systems for professional learning, distributed leadership, supportive policies, and giving explicit attention to equitable science teaching and learning.
As part of the statewide California Science Project network, BASP provides high-quality professional learning for K-12 educators in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, to support and improve their teaching and their students’ learning science.
Residential environmental education (EE) programs provide highly memorable, immersive learning experiences for students to improve their understanding of the natural world. The BEETLES project has created a series of professional development modules and videos for EE staff, as well as effective student activities and resources.
Do you want your students to learn more about the influence of the ocean on them and to explore how they themselves influence the ocean? Are you looking for a school-wide event that will bring faculty, students, and families together, using the ocean as the context for celebrating, learning, and connecting?
The FLP is a professional learning program devised to assist both university and college instructors of STEM courses. The FLP is designed to improve STEM faculties’ instructional practice to support effective student learning.
Argumentation is one of the most complex science practices both for students to learn and for teachers to learn to teach, yet it is a high-leverage practice that cuts across all content areas and builds students’ critical thinking skills. The PRACTISE project developed and researched an effective model of professional learning to support the development of teachers’ pedagogical skills to teach scientific argumentation.
RoP is a professional learning program designed for adoption by informal science learning environments so that all educators in an organization can participate and learn together. The trademarked program immerses all types of educators—veteran and beginning, full-time and part-time, career and seasonal—in discussions about, reflections on, and applications of research and theory on learning and teaching science.
