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.
