Launching the
California Science Center
into the Future

EndeavourLA is a $250 million fundraising campaign to support the California Science Center Foundation’s plans to create the new Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, a major expansion long envisioned in Phase III of our 25-year Master Plan, and sustain ongoing educational programs and operations. Endeavour is now on display in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion, until the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center is complete.

There are several ways you can contribute to this historic effort that will strengthen the California Science Center’s ability to stimulate curiosity and inspire science learning in everyone:

Endeavour and the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center

Endeavour's ultimate mission is to inspire current and future generations of explorers and scientists as the centerpiece the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, projected to open in 2018. This new educational facility is named in recognition of a transformational gift from the Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Oschin Family Foundation. With Endeavour as its centerpiece, the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center will encourage guests to investigate scientific and engineering principles related to atmospheric flight and the exploration of our universe. Integrating immersive experiences, hands-on exhibits to encourage active learning and a unique collection of aircraft and spacecraft, this new facility will be a launch pad for creativity and innovation.

After 25 missions, nearly 123 million miles traveled in space, and a historic 12-mile journey through the streets of Inglewood and Los Angeles, Endeavour is now on public display in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion. We need your support to complete the next stage of this extraordinary project and build Endeavour's permanent home. Please consider making a gift to EndeavourLA today!
