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.
Slime Investigators ONLINE for Grades 1 – 2
One week ONLINE camp
Have you ever have played with or made slime before? This summer you can become a slime engineer! In this online program, you will have fun with the science of slime making. Together we will learn about properties of matter, and explore how different ingredients can create different kinds of slime. You will practice science skills by observing, asking questions, and investigating. By the end you will be able to put your slime knowledge and skills to work to solve some challenges—can your slime make a bridge, protect a fragile package, or bounce like a ball?
What You Will Need at Home:
Please note: Limited adult help may be needed to help your children set up for activities before the start of the session.
Member: $165 / Non-Member: $175
June 28 – July 2 10:30-11:30AM
Nature Explorers ONLINE for Grades 1 – 2
Have you ever looked at the ground and wondered, “What lives underground? How can some bugs live underground, and what do they do down there? What do underground bugs eat?” In this online program, you will create your own terrarium habitats and explore the organisms that live there through a mix of observations, read-alouds, and hands-on activities. You will develop your abilities to observe and explore the world around you—learning skills that can later be applied to anything you find interesting.
July 5 – July 9 10:30-11:30AM
Pinball Wizards ONLINE for Grades 1 – 2
Are you ready to become a pinball wizard? In this online program, you will design and build your own non-electronic pinball game. Together, we will investigate how things roll, fly, slide, collide, and more. Each day you will use your ingenuity to design, build, and test creative contraptions using a variety of materials. You will gain a better understanding of force, trajectory, and motion, as well as how to innovate through the engineering design process.
