Accessible Discovery

Accessible Discovery Program

Discovery Lab is a community hub that strives to impact families regardless of income, education, or ethnicity. The Accessible Discovery (AD) program was developed to reach that goal and increase the access and participation of underserved students and families in informal learning opportunities.

The school-based program provides financial aid for schools to plan field trips, museum classes, and outreach classes to increase the participation of underserved students at schools with high free and reduced lunch population. The program includes three impact points for the entire school: A field trip with museum class and outreach classes back at the school site. 

The organization-based program provides financial aid for programming targeting connecting families and community involvement. The museum partners with organizations working with underserved children and families, and provides programming, memberships, camp scholarships, and engagement nights to their clients. Current partnerships include: Tulsa Housing Authority, the Department of Human Services, Family & Children’s Services (Women in Recovery program and Parenting in Jail program), Sooner Start, the YMCA of Greater Tulsa, and DVIS.

For more information or to apply for the program, contact our Grants Manager at 918-295-8144 ext. 2522 or rwilliams@discoverylab.org.
