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 FLP is a professional learning program devised to assist both university and college instructors of STEM courses. The FLP is designed to improve STEM faculties’ instructional practice and then to have it be sustainably adopted by their institutions. The program nurtures an interdisciplinary learning community, provides continuous support, and is situated within each faculty’s everyday work. As faculty redefine and hone their role in providing undergraduate lectures, students’ learning-gains and experiences in STEM courses will be affected positively.
The goal of the FLP is to improve student achievement in STEM undergraduate courses. The program has the following objectives:
The FLP was written and developed for dissemination by Lynn Tran and Catherine Halversen at the Lawrence Hall of Science, University of California Berkeley.
Thus far, more than 300 STEM faculty from the following campuses have participated in the program:
