Describe the Activity:
The Day of Discovery Program is a middle school science enrichment partnership between Vanderbilt Center for Science Outreach and Metro Nashville Public Schools. This program provides students with opportunities to cultivate curiosity, creativity, and critical reading and communication skills through a hands-on problem-based approach to scientific exploration.
Middle school students from specific schools can participate in Day of Discovery.
Outcome of the Activity:
Students engage in inquiry, research, experimentation, and field trips while learning about topics in STEM fields to support learning in core curricular courses and connect information to the real world. Topics examined include botany, chemistry, computer programming, engineering, genetics, microbiology, oceanography, human health and disease, and scientific research. Students not only participate in extended learning but also build skills necessary for taking advanced courses in high school.
