Science Discovery Education (SDE) during COVID

  • During this unprecedented time of distance learning, Science Discovery Education (SDE) is missing the students and working hard to be prepared for when they come back. Here's what we are doing now: 

    • SDE is working through the Hands On Science Center to support teachers in providing a strong learning experience for remote learners 
    • The Elise Walker Outdoor Learning Center is preparing virtual field trips 
    • The Planetarium has received a big update 
    • The Omni Room
