• DiscoveRoom

  • 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!

  • Volunteers needed!

    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 if 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.

    *Our spring schedule is a tentative schedule as we are working to set-up guest speakers! We may need to move activities around based on guest speaker availability. There are a few weeks left open so that we can add guest speakers or recommended activities. The schedule will be updated as it changes, so check back from time to time.


    *If you would like to be a guest presenter – please email DISCOVERoomKyrene@gmail.com and put Re: Colina Guest Presenter in the subject line. Let us know what you would like to present and when you can come in so we can add you to the schedule!
