COVID-19 Updates

March 20, 2020

All of us at the SD Discovery Center care deeply about our guests, our staff, and our community. The recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has affected all of us and we are doing our best to ensure the safety of every community member. Social distancing is the key to containing the spread of the virus and therefore, our Exhibit Hall will be closed and our in-person programs cancelled until further notice.

To help our community and support kids (and parents!) that are staying home, we offer free and fun science resources online. Check out our science learning resources for PreK-12 on our Facebook page under "Notes". We post a different activity every day Monday-Friday.

Join our Special Programs Director and National Geographic Explorer Anne Lewis Monday through Friday at 10am on Facebook LIVE for a "Science Blast" on how to "Be an Explorer"!

These are difficult times for all of us and our community has to come together. We are grateful that Capital Area United Way supports us to offer these resources free of charge! If you are able to help, support us by donating here.

Thank you for your support and stay safe, healthy, and informed!
