The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
Open Wednesday - Sunday
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
April 1 - 9 open daily
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.
Hydrogen gas plays an important role in the future of clean energy with the potential to replace fossil fuels for many daily and essential applications, from making fertilizers to producing chemicals for plastics. In this Midday Science Cafe, we’ll be hearing from scientists who study different processes working toward the same goal: to make hydrogen fuel a clean, affordable reality. Registration Required.
UC Berkeley scientist Dr. Julie Fornaciari studies the process of creating hydrogen—that is, how to optimize hydrogen production through a process that uses electricity and water. But once we have the hydrogen, how can it be turned into energy? Well, Dr. Arthur Dizon of Berkeley Lab uses mathematical modeling to optimize energy production through a process that uses oxygen alongside hydrogen. Come hear about how we can get to a future with green hydrogen fuel!
