Discovery Lab is a project based community school that serves students K-5th grades in Ellensburg, Wa. Our goal is to create 6 scholarships for our program that runs Monday-Thursday 9-3pm.
Discovery Lab creates an integrated learning environment where students achieve academic excellence through project-based and exploratory methods. We believe that all children learn and develop in unique ways and our learning environment honors the child’s natural pace. Our students will learn to problem solve, think critically, and communicate effectively. Through the use of community partners and resources, students will learn to be stewards of their environment and engaged citizens in their community.
In order to better serve our Ellensburg community we want to provide scholarships for as many students as possible. We are currently the only Project based STEAM classroom in Ellensburg and we are seeing the need for this educational model grow. Many educators are creating a strong case that project based learning inspires students to understand core content knowledge more deeply and gain key skills for success in college and career.
Our Scholarship Campaign will create opportunities for students to be a part of our Day Program which serves students K-5th grade, making it a more equitable resource for our community. We strive to teach our students to seek out opportunities for learning and engage with their community in ways that can lift up everyone in it. As our Discovery Lab teacher Amber Yeager believes
"Children are our greatest teachers and we all need to take the time to listen and meet them where they are. When we do this, we will see them blossom before our eyes, become passionate in the things they love, and become forces that have the power to create positive change in our world."
