“Inspiring science learning”
The Science Center's Mission We aspire to stimulate curiosity and inspire science learning in everyone by creating fun, memorable experiences, because we value science as an indispensable tool for understanding our world, accessibility and inclusiveness, and enriching people's lives. See how we bring our mission to life: The California Science Center, named by Forbes.com as the most popular museum destination in Southern California, has received more than 18 million visitors since opening in February 1998. The Science Center provides a rare model for science learning by combining exhibits with an on-site Science Center School and Amgen Center for Science Learning as well as a teacher professional development program. An admission-free venue, the Science Center offers permanent and changing exhibits and related educational programming through several galleries spanning more than 400,000 sq. feet. World of Life, probes the commonalities of the living world, from the single-celled bacterium to the 100-trillion-celled human being; Creative World examines the ways people employ technology to meet their needs for transportation, communication and structures. The SKETCH Foundation Air and Space Gallery combines items owned by the Science Center and a stunning array of items on loan from the Smithsonian Institution to introduce visitors to the aerospace industry and to the exploration of the stars and the planets.
A cool way to spend the day, since it's basically free. Seeing the Endeavour cost like, 2 or 3 dollars but it was WORTH IT because space is the coolest.
