Do you remember your last “Aha” moment? That moment in time when you gained great insight or grasped a new thought that you couldn’t wait to share with others. Fortunately, as teachers, we get to experience that “Aha” moment in our students time and time again. Today, Discovery Science Foundation teaches almost 300,000 students and teachers annually in structured, science-based programs delivered both onsite at Discovery Cube in Orange County and offsite throughout six counties in Southern California. We are excited about our success and growth, both at our Orange County site and with the opening of our Los Angeles site. Thank you for your support of Discovery Science Foundation and your commitment to the children in Southern California. With your help, not only will “Aha!” become the leading cry, you might even hear a “Eureka!” or two! - Janet Yamaguchi Vice President, Education Discovery Science Foundation

“ If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales. - Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist

Kindergarten Listening, speaking and using one’s imagination helps develop the brain and language skills. Researchers have shown that how a brain develops (along with a belief of whether your own intelligence can continue to grow as you do) hinges on a complex interplay between your genes, the experiences you have, and how you approach learning opportunities. Discovery Cube provides children with creative educational experiences through our Early Learners’ programs and during field trips and in-school programs, that will increase their science-thinking skills and grow their imagination.

We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt 32nd President of the United States

1st Grade Young children have the ability to make observations, as well as compare and contrast items that are similar or dissimilar to each other; these skills are an introduction to thinking creatively and scientifically. Discovery Cube’s goals are to nurture young thinkers and explorers by providing them with enriching, age-appropriate activities, whether at the science center or your school. We’ve been told by adults that didn’t get the chance to do some of the activities presented in our first grade programs, such as investigate owl pellets, until they were in high school – we want to change that.

“ - Sherlock Holmes

What one man can invent, another can discover.

Fictional Detective created by Author and Physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

2nd Grade The world of invention and discovery grows each time someone shares an idea with others. Plus, a team can accomplish more than a separate collection of individuals. Therefore, Discovery Cube designs and displays imaginative, large-scale, educational exhibits and provides inventive programs to young children and educators in order to share knowledge and a fascination with science, discovery and creativity – whether that creativity is based in nature (such as in fossils) or is handmade (by building and experimenting with ramps, for example). Try a Discovery Cube field trip or in-school program and you’ll agree.

“ “

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ (I found it!) but ‘That’s funny’ ... ―

- Isaac Asimov

Science Fiction Author and Professor of Biochemistry

3rd Grade All of us want children to be curious. Exploration, experimentation and a sense of wonder is at the heart of knowledge. In this grade level, students display more independence, a longer attention span, and increased cognitive abilities. However, they are still thinking very literally, therefore abstract ideas can be very hard for them to grasp at times. So, Discovery Cube offers educational programs, both at the science center and in-school that provide students with hands-on, concrete objects to associate with abstract ideas, in order for them to explore science concepts at their level of understanding.

If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. ―

- Sir Isaac Newton

Physicist (paraphrased from a quote by Bernard of Chartres in the 12th century)

4th Grade In the fourth grade, children are at the age when they understand how to work in groups and can meaningfully contribute while working as a team member. Collaboration and information-application advances knowledge, therefore students can greatly benefit from each other’s insights and ideas. With Discovery Cube’s education programs, students can work together and learn from others, whether they are prone to thinking or tinkering. Hands-on, bodies-on and minds-on – they’re at the heart of the Cube’s mission in Orange County, the Valley and in your own classroom in Southern California.

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

- Thomas Edison

Inventor

5th Grade All of us want children to persevere; to keep trying and not give up. The most certain way for someone to succeed in anything they do is to try just one more time. Researchers have identified “perseverance” (“grit”) as one of the leading predictors of academic and career success. Not surprisingly, those with grit are more single-minded about their goals – they tend to get obsessed with certain activities. Discovery Cube provides in-school, afterschool, and onsite opportunities for students to become obsessed with science, technology, engineering, and math. And our own gritty goal is success, not failure.

“ A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales.

“

- Marie Curie

Physicist and Chemist

6th Grade When one combines a sense wonder with a desire to help others and the ability to think beyond what is currently possible, you have the necessary skills to change the world‌.. and perhaps the heart of a sixth grader. As students enter their middle school years, they find themselves caught in an interesting world between wanting to be an adult (thinking as an individual) and hoping to be a part of something bigger than themselves (whether a clique, a club, or other) and at the same time, maintaining a childlike fascination of the things around them. Through onsite, after school and in-school programs, Discovery Cube wants to inspire and guide these students toward responsible and productive courses.

What we do see depends mainly on what we look for... In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the coloring, sportsmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them - John Lubbock

Archaeologist (1800’s)

7th Grade Discovery Cube offers focused programs on the anatomy of the eye, such as the cow’s eye dissection presented in your classroom, but more importantly, we hope that as the students navigate through their academic career, they are able to see a multitude of possibilities for their future, particularly associated with science, technology and engineering-based careers. Consider one of our Future Scientists and Engineers of America “Do-it-Yourself” kits that provide teachers with a step-by-step booklet, along with the necessary supplies to conduct an extended program on rockets, catapults or an introduction to microprocessors.

8th Grade In eigth grade, students are conscious about the “present,” and not as concerned about the past nor the future. This is the time when they can opt to select particular courses of study or pathways of life that will impact them for possibly the rest of their lives. Currently, over 70% of jobs that pay livable wages require science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM), however 100% of jobs require critical-thinking, problem-solving and the ability to communicate effectively: all science-thinking skills.
