Spring Break at The Lawrence Hall of Science: Unleashing Creativity and Learning with EARTH.SPEAKS, Flaming Lotus Girls’ Heart Sculpture, Pyrotechnic Displays and More!

Exciting Spring Break Activities Happening at Lawrence Hall of Science

During spring break, The Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley is offering families a unique and educational experience. 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 highlights of the event 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 witness the creation of these markers and learn about the importance of sustainable building practices.

Another exciting activity 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. Pyrotechnic displays will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and select weekdays during the event. The display is sure to be a crowd pleaser and will provide visitors with an educational experience about human anatomy and physiology.

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. The eclipse viewing party will provide visitors with a unique opportunity to witness this natural phenomenon up close and learn about its significance in science and culture.
