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.

Cow-Eye Dissection
This 60-minute program includes all required materials, including the cow eye, dissecting tray and gloves. Students will work in pairs to dissect a cow eye. They will see the major structures of the eye and explore how those structures work together to produce images.

Journey to Space 3D
Journey to Space 3D is an inspiring reflection on the remarkable achievements of NASA’s Space Shuttle program, including the assembly and launch of the International Space Station and the deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope. Missions like these have taught us how to live, build, and conduct science in space and helped to build the foundation for future space exploration. The film, narrated by Patrick Stewart, also features a fascinating showcase of the exciting plans that are underway for the next giant leap into space: landing humans on Mars.

On Monday, January 11, 2016, seventh graders will travel to the California Science Center for an eye-opening experience. They will see eye-to-eye with a cow’s eye and have the opportunity to eye the new IMAX movie, SPACE STATION 3D. Students will depart The Learning Castle at 8:00 a.m. and return to campus around 1:15 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.

If you would like your child to attend this trip, please complete and return the attached Field Trip Permission form by Friday, December 18, 2015.
