Spring Break at Lawrence Hall of Science: Building with Earth and Printing with the Sun

Exciting Spring Break Activities Happening at Lawrence Hall of Science

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

One of the most exciting activities available is an earth architecture project led by Osage artist Brooke Smiley in collaboration with the arts agency SOZO. This project, titled EARTH.SPEAKS, aims to heal and uplift Native voices through the community creation of earth markers using sustainable sculpture building practices. Visitors can participate in this empowering activity and learn about the importance of preserving our planet’s natural resources.

Another highlight of the event is an 8-foot anatomically correct human heart sculpture created by the Flaming Lotus Girls that pulses with flames to simulate blood flow through vessels. The Pyrotechnic displays will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and select weekdays during the event, providing visitors with a thrilling experience that they won’t forget.

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., where visitors can witness one of nature’s most spectacular events.
