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.
Opening June 19, 2022
From the native vegetation to a range of guided and self-driven experiences, the Robert and Elizabeth Karplus Outdoor Nature Lab provides a unique space where all visitors will make close observations of, and deepen their connection with, the natural environment. Visitors are encouraged to bring their curiosity, follow it to wherever it leads them, and then take their new observation skills with them to explore their own backyards!

These experiences not only will nurture a scientific mindset, but will also spark connections to environmental issues ranging from invasive species and bee die-offs to individual actions that can positively impact our natural resources.
