Photograph caption dated April 29, 1963 partially reads, "Science center offers teachers and students opportunity for specialized training...Claudia Schewe, 17, student at Dorsey High, Los Angeles, studies flies for special experiment." The article partially reads, "For many years, the building at 1205 Pico Blvd., in Los Angeles was just another elementary school. Then it served as part of one of the district's many junior high schools. More recently it was relegated to serving as a warehouse for textbooks and audio-visual materials. But now, 60 years after its construction, the facility has come into its own. The building is the home of the district's new centralized science center--the first such public school facility in the nation...The center will provide specialized training for teachers and advanced students...provide workshop rooms where teachers will be able to construct new equipment...It will also distribute many perishable laboratory materials...under the new system, the teacher can purchase his supplies directly from the center."; See images #00118363 through #00118364 for all photos in this series.
