"Whether they are investigating a crime scene, creating a relief map, or dissecting a sheep’s brain, Ms Discoe’s students learn by doing, and in the process, they become critical thinkers and excellent problem solvers."
Amy Thompkins, Curriculum and Instruction Coordinator, Pre College Programs, Sonoma State University
"If I had the opportunity, as a student, to experience Ms. Discoe and her science labs, I think that science would easily have been my favorite subject."
Melissa Hall, 4/5 grade teacher REACH Program Brookhaven Middle School
Learn From Your Own Curiosity
Imagine studying science in a rich and exciting environment,
an environment that increases curiosity rather than
stifling it. Imagine combining the naturalist's love
of a myriad of biological specimens with modern microscopes
and computers. To guide you is Ms. Discoe, a credentialed
teacher with over 18 years' teaching experience.
