Earth and Flame: Unique Science Center Attractions during Spring Break at The Lawrence Hall of Science

Exciting Spring Break Activities Happening at Lawrence Hall of Science

Spring break is the perfect time for families to visit The Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley. 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.

Another must-see attraction 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.

In addition to these exciting attractions, visitors can also participate in daily opportunities to make sun prints from the outdoor plaza with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay. An eclipse viewing party on April 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. is also not to be missed.
