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.
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.
Last August, California announced groundbreaking plans to phase out the production of traditional gas-powered cars by 2035. Reports show that, with the right policies, it is technically and economically feasible. But state and local leaders have just over a decade to transition how Californians drive and fuel their vehicles. Join us at this month’s Midday Science Cafe to learn more. Featuring Priyanka Mohanty, Senior Research Analyst in the International Energy Group at Berkeley Lab and Ted Lamm, Senior Research Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Center for Law, Energy & the Environment.
At this month’s Midday Science Cafe, we’ll hear from Priyanka Mohanty, Senior Research Analyst in the International Energy Group at Berkeley Lab about the staggering statistics that will result from this effort. For instance, the transition is predicted to save 150,000 premature deaths, avoid $1.3 trillion in environmental and health costs, cut $2.7 trillion in transportation costs, and support a net increase of over 2 million jobs, all by 2035. We’ll then hear from Ted Lamm, Senior Research Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Center for Law, Energy & the Environment, who will discuss a new research initiative that will work with local governments across California to develop equitable infrastructure plans that focus on the needs and capacities of the most under-resourced and highest priority communities; for instance, charging stations in communities that are less likely to have access to private and workplace charging opportunities. Join us to learn more about smart policy solutions for California’s ambitious energy and electrification goals!
