Discovery Zone Play Associate
A brand new Discovery Zone is opening this summer, and you can be a part of the fun! The Discovery Zone is a hands-on exhibit area designed for kids ages 0-8 including both school groups and young children with families. If you are creative, enjoy science, and love working with kids, then this is the place for you!  Discovery Zone volunteers help our little guests learn through play by making nature inspired art, digging for dinosaur fossils, experiencing physics through balls and ramps, and much more!  Click here for an extended description of the Museum’s newest gallery.
