Discover for Yourself
years of student discovery
The Discovery team channels their passion for education, critical thought, and community to empower high school students to lead university-level innovations. Our volunteer team of mentors and experts allows students to explore aspects of physics, biology, and chemistry in new and creative ways beyond what's possible in a traditional classroom setting.
Discovery students and volunteers learn something new every day: in idle chatter, in heart-to-hearts, and even (perhaps unsurprisingly) in the lab!
Discovery Chemistry Lead
"As a mentor, it is gratifying to see how they formulate their questions and experiments as true, independent scientists. More than chemistry, biology, or physics, they are learning how to be critical thinkers."
Former Discovery Student
"We really get to do things on our own and actually think. I enjoy that because we have more control over what we are doing."
"They are seeing people that look like them. This is the first time—I would think, for a lot of these students [that] they're actually seeing individuals that represent [them] being really successful in master's programs [or] a PhD. So, I really think that does help a lot of them."
