Who We Are

At the Discovery Cube

We inspire and educate young minds through engaging science-based programs and exhibits to create a meaningful impact on the communities we serve.

Discovery Cube’s Story

Opening in 1998 in Orange County, Discovery Cube has delighted the lives of children, educators, and caregivers for decades and instilled a passion for the sciences on millions of lives. In a world that has accelerated and grown from technological and scientific advancements left and right, we have created high-quality science learning experiences to propel young scientists forward as the innovators
of the future.

Our Approach

Our team of exhibit designers and educators are constantly creating on- and off-site activities that cater to the needs of learners of all backgrounds. From kinesthetic and auditory to visual learning, we have experiences for every child to learn, engage, and have fun.

Why Science Education Matters

In a world of increasing technological advancements and scientific discoveries, we continue to see a growing gap and lack of diversity in the STEM fields. Here at the Discovery Cube, our goal is supporting the fulfillment of the current and future needs of STEM professionals by educating and inspiring current generations of young minds. Science has been on the wayside of learning for many students, with early-age teachers focused on English and math instruction, which creates less opportunities for scientific exposure for students.

Through your support, we can empower students, educators, and families by creating windows of opportunity where current and future generations have equitable access to the world of STEM. Science has room for everyone, and we must invest in allowing children to explore their passions within STEM so that they have access to more opportunities in the future.

Our Community

With support from the Summer of STEM collaborative in Los Angeles, the Discovery Cube has been able to provide free, virtual summer camp activities and opportunities to the children in the Northeast Valley and local community safely from home. I thank them for their commitment to our community and the mission to impact and inspire the next generation of scientists and leaders.
