Saturday, June 23 – Full Day excursion
We start the day with a trip to Warner Brothers Studio where we will explore their backlots and visit some of the soundstages where filming is in progress. The morning ends with an interactive soundstage experience that explores key phases of the entertainment production process.
We will walk to the near by Claim Jumper restaurant for lunch before our visit to the Getty Center, where we will have a guided tour of the unique architecture and gardens of the Getty Center and time to wander through some of the exhibits.
Sunday, June 24 – Half-day excursion
At Claremont Graduate University, within walking distance from the DoubleTree Hotel, Professor Brian Hilton, from Claremont Graduate University’s Center for Information Systems and Technology (CISAT), will give a presentation about the current uses of graphic information systems (GIS) in a wide variety of fields, followed by a visit to the Drucker School of Management.
We will have lunch together, after which you will be free to wander through Claremont Village with its collection of shops, galleries, and other interesting places to explore. Alternatively, you can walk to the nearby Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Gardens, which is the largest botanic garden dedicated to California native plants.
We will arrange transportation for those who cannot walk the half-mile from the DoubleTree. (If you can’t walk, let us know.)
