California Science Center

Los Angeles, California

The California Science Center provides an innovative model for science learning by combining museum exhibitions with the on-site Science Center School and an extensive professional development program for teachers. The Science Center is the new home to the space shuttle Endeavour, one of four decommissioned orbiters from NASA's Space Shuttle program. Alongside Endeavour are artifacts and meteorite samples on long-term loan from the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum and National Museum of Natural History—a result of the Center’s Smithsonian Affiliation and long relationship with the Smithsonian.
