Education - Discovery Lab

Welcome to the Discovery Lab!

When you need to engage a group of children with hands-on activities, come to the Discovery Lab, where it’s easy to learn about the natural world! You don’t have to be an expert: our programs cover the science of rocks, living things, soil, water, and fossils. Plus, our unique natural setting allows each person to discover their place in the world by exploring the interconnectedness of the environment, our shared heritage, and the geography of our incredible province.

If you’ve got a child with a keen interest in science and nature, check out our family programs! They’re a fun way to enhance your child’s education and encourage their curiosity. And don’t let the kids have all the fun. We have programs for grown ups too!

We offer interactive learning opportunities online and in person for children, families, teachers, and lifelong learners!
