Museum Visit Plus Discovery Space

When you visit the Sciencenter, your group can also reserve a private visit to the museum's Discovery Space, hosted by a Sciencenter educator. The Discovery Space provides a place to explore the world of science at their own pace. Kids and adults alike spend time engaged in self-directed, hands-on, independent learning experiences as they invesigate science through activities, games and experiments.

Duration: Discovery Space reservations last approximately 30 minutes. Sciencenter educators will divide large groups into shifts for the program, with a maximum of 20 persons per session.

Elementary school teachers: The Discovery Space supports nearly all of the New York State Learning Standards for Mathematics, Science and Technology:

  • Standard 1 - Analysis, Inquiry and Design
  • Standard 3 - Mathematics
  • Standard 4 - Science
  • Standard 5 - Technology
  • Standard 6 - Interconnectedness

A Sciencenter educator can help you identify the discovery boxes that are best aligned with your curriculum and class interests.
