27 Jun July 2018 Pedal For A Purpose Partner – Discovery Center – What To Do For Fun in Springfield MO
Our June 2018 Pedal For A Purpose Partner is The Discovery Center. Discovery Center of Springfield is an interactive, hands-on science museum committed to inspiring people of all ages with a life-long love of learning and an appreciation for the world and our place in it.
The Discovery Center promotes Great Minds @ Play by creating and maintaining a fun, inspiring, and interactive educational resource center for students, teachers, and families of the Ozarks. It demonstrates science, technology, art, history, and culture through exhibits, programs, and collaborative efforts. It provides a number of unique, educational opportunities that provide hands-on, interactive, inquiry based learning experiences to help increase participants’ deductive reasoning and critical thinking skills.
The Discovery Center is committed to student outreach. Its Science Sprouts programs address the critical needs of ensuring children are starting Kindergarten ready to learn. Also, after-school programs such as Discovery Science Club target inner city public middle school students who are at-risk, low achieving students. Programs focus on inquiry based activities relevant to students’ lives. Students have fun learning and for the first time are engaged in what they are learning and motivated to stay in school.
Discovery Center of Springfield is not only a great place to visit with friends and family of all ages, but also serves as southwest Missouri’s primary science education resource facility. They currently serve 30 counties in Missouri, 33 other states, and 3 other countries including Mexico, Canada, and Australia through their general admission, field trips, home school, outreach programs, summer workshops and in-house programming.
