Exciting Spring Break Activities Happening at Lawrence Hall of Science

Sun, Sand and Science: A Unique Spring Break Experience at The Lawrence Hall of Science

During spring break, The Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley offers families the chance to get creative with earth and print with the sun. From March 30 to April 7, the science center has a packed schedule of special events, extended hours, and activities suitable for all ages.

One of the highlights is an earth architecture project led by Osage artist Brooke Smiley in collaboration with the arts agency SOZO. This project, called EARTH.SPEAKS, aims to uplift and heal Native voices through community-building sustainable sculpture practices that create earth markers.

Visitors can also witness a massive 8-foot anatomically correct human heart sculpture created by the Flaming Lotus Girls that comes alive with flames to simulate blood flow through vessels. Pyrotechnic displays will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m on weekends and select weekdays during the event.

Other activities include an event on lighting and wildfires, daily opportunities to make sun prints from the outdoor plaza with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay, and an eclipse viewing party on April 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
