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.
Place a fern, flower, or other object on this special paper and set it in the sun briefly. Then, rinse the paper in water and watch as a beautiful, long-lasting image appears. Get inspired with SUNPRINT Kits, developed right here at the Lawrence Hall of Science.
