Message from DCS Education Director
From communicating by morse code to communicating by text messaging, advances in science and technology have transformed daily life! New discoveries occur on a daily basis, and it's hard for any one person to keep pace! The students in your classrooms are the physicians, engineers, bio-medical researchers or enviornmental chemists of the future. Discovery Center of Springfield exists to serve as a resource for you, the classroom teacher, as a tool for helping meet not only grade level expectations in science, but also to light a spark of excitment in your students for science learning.
In addition to being a field trip destination we have a wealth of programs that we can bring to your school site...and a team of highly qualified educators skilled in providing inquiry learning techniques, hands-on science experiences, and content expertise. We hope this school year is one of your best and that you seek out Discovery Center science resources to help you ignite the spark of science learning for the next generation!
