About Discovery Center
This three-year program partners urban and suburban schools in grades four, five and six to enhance student diversity, raise student awareness of diversity issues, and to increase student motivation and skills through the use of new and prior knowledge. Students receive pen pals at partner schools to communicate with online and through partner school visits. The program for fourth-grade students culminates with a day trip to a camp for team-building exercises. Fifth graders spend a week overnight at camp, focusing on a common curriculum unit shared by both schools. For sixth graders, CREC Discovery Center concludes with a three-day residential camp program focusing on social action.
