"It's the Process, Not the Product"
Discover Lab is a class where students develop the skills required to solve real-world problems but in a fun and age-appropriate way. Discover Lab challenges are designed to encourage communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and perseverance, in addition to working with limited resources and time constraints. Our goal is for students to realize for themselves that teamwork and perseverance are key to success in most of our challenges, and that failure is simply an expected part of the learning process.
Check out the 'See What We Do' tab to see some of our past challenges!
