Discovery Center at Home

Let this page be a resource to all that are unable to visit our galleries in-person! We have compiled lesson plans to aid in at-home discussions with your kids about some of the issues our world is facing today, Take Action cards to print at home to inspire ways we can all make a difference with small efforts, and a calendar to mark daily ways you can empower change – big and small.

Create Brave Spaces – at home or online!


The agreements below set the tone and declare the values of this learning environment. As a brave space, we encourage self-reflection and dialogue. They are critical to fostering inclusion and belonging. We invite you to keep these principles in mind as you learn about the stories of young leaders, the social movements they represent, and explore the power we all have to build a better world.

  • We speak our truth.
  • We listen to understand.
  • We remain present and engaged.
  • We are mindful of the impact of our words.
  • We celebrate our differences and common humanity.
