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.
Join The Lawrence On-The-Go at the annual North Bay Science Discovery Day in Santa Rosa! Children, teens, and families are all invited to this free festival to spark wonder and curiosity about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The Lawrence will bring our Optical Illusions activity.
How do our eyes and brain work together to make sense of the world around us? Experiment and observe with concave and convex mirrors to learn more. Then design, build, and test your own optical illusion out of everyday materials!
