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

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 the chance to build with the earth and print with the sun. From March 30 through 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, titled EARTH.SPEAKS, aims to uplift Native voices through community creation of earth markers using sustainable sculpture building practices.

Visitors can also witness 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.

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 .
