The Life Science Learning Center (LSLC) was officially founded in 2005. It is a branch of the pre-existing Life Science Zurich, an organization created by and belonging to the University of Zurich and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich to promote and support life sciences in several central parts of society. The LSLC's primary goals are to offer educational opportunities for school children as well as continuing education for teachers of the primary and secondary school levels. In particular, the LSLC facilitates various types of interactions between schools and the higher educational and research institutions (University of Zurich and Federal Institutes of Technology): it offers practicals for pupils in a special laboratory, tours of professional research laboratories, pedagogical training for future biology teachers, and specialized modules of continuing education for teachers. It also contributes to diverse initiatives promoting life sciences in the general public. It is led by a small team of dedicated people based on the Irchel Campus of the University of Zurich.
