“Now, more than ever, we must unite and confront with determination and resolve the forces of hatred, intolerance, and division.”
Carol Christ, Chancellor,
While our events are on hold, we’re here to engage you in a virtual celebration of the wonders of Berkeley STEM research. In our newsletter and here on our website, we’ll be sharing videos, lectures, articles, and activities for you and your family to enjoy. There’s a lot here to get you started, and we promise more wonders and delights to come…so please stay tuned! If you have suggestions for Berkeley-related science videos, articles, or books we should share, please let us know! Email us at: And most of all, take care and be well! The Science at Cal Team
The Science of Covid-19
Science at Cal and the Lawrence Hall of Science would like to provide our followers and members with a list of curated resources around COVID-19. We hope that this page will help answer some of your questions, help you better understand scientific topics surrounding COVID-19, and, as a result, provide a sense of clarity during these uncertain times.

Our vision

In 2008, Science at Cal was envisioned as a unifying effort to raise public awareness, understanding and appreciation of scientific research at Berkeley. 

To realize this vision, we engage the vast Berkeley STEM community as science communicators and foster creative collaborations among campus and community-based groups who share our commitment to equity and inclusion in STEM education and careers. 

Throughout the year, Science at Cal presents ongoing, free outreach programs in STEM and other disciplines, helps promote other groups’ related efforts, and creates new programs and initiatives at Berkeley and in the community. This broad scope of activities is made possible by Science at Cal’s dynamic network of campus alliances and valuable community partnerships.

Our Mission

Science at Cal connects UC Berkeley Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) researchers with diverse community groups of all ages and backgrounds, for science engagement and learning. Accessibility, inclusiveness, creativity and innovation are hallmarks of Science at Cal events, which reach tens of thousands of people annually.

    • Monthly, free lectures and science cafes with leading researchers in fields from Astronomy to Zoology
    • Hands-on science learning at numerous community events
    • Many more opportunities for science learning throughout the Bay Area
