UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science – A University Museum Case Study

University museums are noteworthy for their location, resources, audience, and academic prestige. Join us June 9 “up on the hill” at UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science for a rare opportunity to learn what it’s like running one of the Bay Area’s most beloved public science centers. Founded in 1968 in honor of Cal’s first Nobel laureate Ernest Orlando Lawrence, the Hall has attracted visitors for generations through its hands-on exhibits, curriculum design, and professional development. Find out what excites current staff about STEM education and new technologies, and how this university museum is uniquely equipped to serve students of ALL ages.
