The Amgen Science Center for Science Learning is the educational arm of the California Science Center. The Amgen Science Center is dedicated to promoting lifelong science learning for all and seeks to improve science education by providing science experiences and resources to parents, teachers, children, and scientists.

For the first time in Los Angeles—The California Science Center in cooperation with the Israel Antiquities Authority presents the largest Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition ever mounted outside of Israel, featuring over 600 ancient artifacts on display. This special exhibition explores the science and significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls, manuscripts written and hidden in caves 2000 years ago and not discovered until 1947.

Through breathtaking aerial footage, eye-opening personal stories and remarkable historical perspective, Jerusalem takes viewers inside the heart of the ancient city in ways never seen before. This inspiring film also features exclusive footage that will take you to the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Dome of the Rock, the Jordan River, the Sea of Galilee and the mountain fortress of Masada.

On Wednesday, September 2, 2015, seventh graders will travel to the California Science Center to see the special exhibit on one of the most significant archaeological finds of the century, the Dead Sea Scrolls. They will also take a fantastic visual tour of the ancient city of Jerusalem. Students will depart The Learning Castle at 8:15 a.m. and return to campus around 2:15 p.m.

Students will need to bring a sack lunch, including snack and drinks, in a clearly labeled disposable bag. Please make sure that you do not order Freshlunches on a field trip day.
