Our
Approach

Discovery is founded, implemented, and delivered by post-secondary students with a vested interest in mentoring the next generation of STEM leaders.

 

Discovery participants—whether students, mentors, or educators—gain valuable experience in mentorship,

leadership, collaboration, educational design, and outside-the-box thinking. Secondary students engage in Discovery through collaborative projects inspired by inquiry- and problem-based learning amounting to 10–15% of their course credit.

Getting the Gears Turning

Every term of Discovery begins with a question: every subject will be paired with its own request for proposal (RFP) and provided to students as a unique problem in need of further investigation.

Before getting too ahead of ourselves, it's good to plan ahead. During this stage, mentors and their student groups join forces to think of a few ideas for how they might approach the problem at hand.
