Discovery World is a 501c3 registered nonprofit organization, receiving no government or United Way funding, and operating to provide educational experiences through interactive exhibits and programs for families and students in Milwaukee, the region and throughout the Midwest. Discovery World serves over 300,000 visitors annually, over 3,000 scouts and over 2,000 campers each summer. Through our Access Fund for Education, we provide many of these experiences to low-income children, schools and families in the region who do not have access to quality STEM educational opportunities. Within our mission, we invoke the sentiment that Discovery World exists to inspire the next generation of engineers, designers, scientists, inventors, and community leaders. We also encourage collaboration amongst corporate partners, educators, and community members to achieve a larger goal – provide all children with access to quality educational experiences and resources that will allow them to flourish now and in adulthood. Our team utilizes programming, curriculum and exhibits to generate excitement in the minds of young people about future science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers, even before they reach high school and beyond. By focusing on career readiness at a young age, we are able to provide resources to children of all backgrounds, gender, abilities and socioeconomic status. This is extremely important for Milwaukee and the surrounding areas, as the National Assessment of Educational Progress (the Nation’s Report Card) found that the science black-white educational gap in Wisconsin is bigger than any other part of the country and remains unchanged (2019). We recognize that everyone’s career paths may not be level so we are trying to be a resource in remedying that problem.
