What Discovery Corps Means To Me

Pacific Science Center’s Discovery Corps is a volunteer program for high school students ages 14 and older who are interested in gaining job and life skills while working to provide Pacific Science Center’s guests with a unique and interactive experience. While the program provides tremendous benefits for the youth – we often hear wonderful stories of how their experiences have enriched their lives – we also feel tremendous gratitude to these young people for the energy, enthusiasm and passion they bring to Pacific Science Center. Below are a number of video stories from Discovery Corps alumni and current members of what the program has meant to them.

Alec Meet Alec: "Doing science interpretation here at Pacific Science Center it's made me feel like there's a lot more to learning than just a teacher lecturing at someone and there are more effective and fun ways for learning to happen."
