Discovery Lab Launches New Website

May 2, 2018 6:12 pm

This May, Discovery Lab launched a new website with added resources and features to offer visitors a first-rate online experience.

“It is our hope that this website will be an extension of everything Discovery Lab is doing in the community,” said Ray Vandiver, Discovery Lab Executive Director.

New website features include:

  • A home page Field Trip Outlook with details about when to expect large groups at the museum.
  • A comprehensive event calendar with all the details about upcoming events and quick and easy access to registration.
  • Today’s museum hours conveniently located at the top of every page.
  • A blog where you can find the latest news from Discovery Lab, hands-on activities from our education team, and more!

The new website comes as Discovery Lab continues growing, with plans to break ground later this year on a new children’s museum/science center within the Gathering Place. The new facility will have 50,000 square feet and the capacity to impact well over 200,000 visitors per year, expanding Discovery Lab’s presence and meeting the growing needs of the community.

“We have been overjoyed and overwhelmed by the community response since opening Discovery Lab in Owen Park in 2013, and we are excited to offer families an expanded experience when we move into our new site in 2020,” Vandiver said.

In the last year, Discovery Lab and Tulsa Public Schools have announced plans for the new Discovery Lab in The Gathering Place to serve district students for STEAM learning experiences.  However, the museum will still have ample room to serve other area districts as well. Furthermore, Discovery Lab has expanded the Accessible Discovery sponsorship program—working with organizations including Tulsa housing Authority, Family & Children’s Services of Tulsa, and the Department of Human Services.

We hope that you will stay in touch with Discovery Lab through this blog—more news, fun activities, and educational resources to come!
