From rocket launches to fossil records, Discovery Place Summer Camps are offering a host of new and exciting subjects for kids to explore.

Summer Camps are back! We’ve got several new and exciting topics we’ll be exploring this year, from Natural Wonders to Paleohistory to Sounds of Summer.

It’s an introduction to all things audio, both natural and manmade, for rising 4th and 5th graders.

Bosch's support made it possible for 10 teachers to attend two professional development programs in the Museum and at Discovery Place Education Studio.

We would like to extend a BIG thank you to Bosch Global and Bosch Community Fund for sponsoring our Explore More Stuff robotics lab this month.

Self-guided activity stations allowed them to learn about the communication between an information processing system (like a computer) and the outside world, such as a human or another information processing system. Then they could take their new-found knowledge and manipulate computer code to make an electromechanical … Keep reading.
