One of our pediatric dentists, Dr. Cariann Champagne, has proudly made donations to The Discovery for several years now and as a result we have grown to see The Discovery as a vital part of our Northern Nevada community!

The Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum began seven years ago with hopes to “inspire lifelong learning in science, technology, engineering, art, math, and the world around us. The museum also aims to provoke new aspirations and collaborations among children, parents, and educators. The Discovery is a place of open eyes, open minds, and open horizons.”

Some of our staff members here at Champagne Family Dentistry had a chance to tour The Discovery and were amazed at the vast amount of events and activities that are put on for the WHOLE family.

One of our favorite events for adults is The Discovery’s event called Social Science, which allows adults to explore the beats and riffs that they love to listen to. Social Science also includes live music and karaoke with hands on exploration into sound waves and musical technology. Social Science will take place on Saturday, September 6th at 6pm. For more information, click HERE.

Another great event for adults is The Discovery’s Chemistry of the Cocktail, which will be taking place on Friday, November 14th at 6pm. This event entails a great culinary experience with mixology lessons and tips. Not to mention… Some amazing cocktails! For more information on this great event, click HERE.

In addition to wonderful events for adults/parents, The Discovery is constantly working to provide children with fun filled activities that create imagination based learning and exploration. Some wonderful events coming up for kids of all ages are Automobile Week (July 28 – Aug 3) and Superhero Week (Aug 4 – Aug 8).

Automobile Week allows kids to explore the inner workings of a combustion engine, check out real vehicles on display, and build a car of their own using material ranging from wood to pasta! For more information, click HERE.

Auto Week

Superhero Week helps kids develop the skills they will need to conquer the world ;). They will be shown how to make superhero accessories and will learn everything they will need to know about superhero DNA. Kids will also be able to learn how superheroes obtain their amazing powers!
