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.

School Based

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 populations. The program includes a field trip with museum class and outreach classes back at the school site. 

For more information on our school-based program, contact our Education Partnerships and Research Coordinator at 918-295-2525 or

Organization Based

The organization-based component of Accessible Discovery was developed to element perceived and real barrier that keep children and families from accessing Discovery Lab programming. Discovery Lab works to customize personalized programming for each organization we partner with. Financial aid for programming is provided for organizations for the purpose of connecting families and promoting community involvement.

The financial component may include programming, memberships, camp scholarships, Family STEAM nights, transportation assistance, or other components that will help reach underserved children and families.
