The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
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.
The Lawrence Hall of Science may be closer than you think! From Maker faires to community festivals, from family STEM nights to events at your local library, discover The Lawrence’s science enrichment programs right in your neighborhood and community. Interested in bringing The Lawrence On-The-Go outreach programs to your community? Contact Reyna Hamilton, Community Engagement and Outreach Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lawrence On-The-Go team engages youth, families and communities in high quality and meaningful STEM engagement opportunities. Through these activities, we aim to broaden participation by providing programs that are accessible, experiential, relevant and where people are—in their communities.
Si diriges un haz de luz a la mano, no se siente mucho, salvo un poco de calor. Pero si diriges ese mismo haz de luz hacia partículas microscópicas, la luz se convierte en una herramienta realmente poderosa capaz de capturar y mover objetos. Pareciera que al hablar de manipulación de objetos mediante la luz se está haciendo referencia a alguna escena de ciencia ficción, pero no lo es. En esta charla Dra. Francesca Burgos Bravo hablará sobre los inicios de la manipulación óptica de partículas y cómo se ha convertido en una herramienta fundamental para estudiar procesos biológicos.
As scientists continuously hunt for novel approaches to combat our energy crisis, the field of materials science has secured a spot in the fight, furthering our understanding of the properties and applications of matter. “Materials discovery” is at the heart of this research. Featuring Dr. Rachel Woods-Robinson from UC Berkeley and Dr. Matthew K Horton from Berkeley Lab.
In this lecture, Dr. Hany Farid will discuss the online disinformation landscape and what interventions are available. He will also provide an overview of how deep fakes are created, how they are being used and misused, and if and how they can be distinguished from reality.
Have questions about our community programs? We’d love to speak to you.
