Welcome to the Colina DISCOVERoom online!
The DISCOVERoom or DR is a STEM based learning program that takes place during lunch recess. It is run by volunteers with support of donations and tax credit donation funds. The DR provides an opportunity for students to freely explore a variety of science and engineering concepts. This year DR will be open on Wednesday and Thursday!
The DISCOVERoom can only be open if there are parent and community volunteers available during lunch recess. There has to be a minimum of 2 volunteers for the room to be open and 4 is optimal. Below you will find a link to sign-up to volunteer and see who is volunteering on what days and where there is a need, as well as orientation materials about the time spent in DR and procedure.
Re-Opening to students in September.
We will be open for visits on Mon Jul 29th for meet the teacher and on Aug 8 and 14 for Curriculum Nights. We welcome visitors on all these nights.
