Discovery Center Programs

During a facilitated laboratory program supported by Travelers, students are active participants, performing investigations and learning how science is part of their own everyday experiences. Each Discovery Center Lab models one 45-minute classroom period that aligns with the Connecticut Science Framework and supports science practices within the Next Generation Science Standards.

Discovery Center laboratory programs take place in the Pfizer Discovery Center on Level G1.

For additional information and support, it is strongly recommended that teachers attend one of our Professional Development Workshops
