We’ll bring our 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.
A new exhibit at The Lawrence aims to demystify the latest technology and engage visitors’ curiosity about how AI works.
Because we know what engages children, we’ve put together a list of science kits, books, crafts, and more that make excellent gifts or stocking stuffers.
On Saturday, October 21, visitors and members were among the first to experience the new Animal Discovery Zone!
For nearly 50 years, kids and families have used Sunprint paper to flex their creativity, capturing everything from leaves to action figures in signature white and blue images.
On Saturday, October 14, a partial eclipse will be visible across a large swath of the country, including right here in the Bay Area!
Picture a school gymnasium, except instead of kids playing dodgeball, it’s filled with the sights and sounds of discovery. The gym is transformed into a miniature science center!
