Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.
As the Assistant Director of Visitor Experiences, I enjoy working with staff and volunteers to create positive experiences for our visitors of all ages. I joined the Discovery Museum after working in museum education and visitor services and completing an MA in Archaeological Studies at Yale University. Studying archaeology includes an exploration of history, art, and language, but archaeology also utilizes science and math to understand early cultures.
