Science Learning Center


  • Come Visit Us During Summer!

    During the summer the Science Learning Center has open hours for staff and students on Thursdays from 11:00am to 1:00pm. We are also available by appointment.

  • Explore Our Virtual Exhibits

    You can experience our Critter Collection from the comfort of your own home or classroom. Check out our Critter Cam exhibit, where you can view a featured invertebrate (animal without backbones) in real time! A new invertebrate is featured roughly every month.

    What can you learn from a bone? Turns out, quite a bit! Check out our exhibit Skulls: Heads and Tales, where you can examine 3D models of animal skulls in virtual space!

Hands-on Science Learning

The Science Learning Center (SLC) provides unique learning experiences for elementary and middle school aged students in local communities, as well as the students of CSULB, through exhibits and activities that encourage questioning and hands-on investigation. Through both on-site and outreach programs, the Center seeks to support STEM awareness and interest, to inform and support local science education and provide an avenue to showcase research in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics to new audiences.
