Educator Saturdays: Celebrating area K-12 teachers

Throughout September, all Discovery Place locations are celebrating our region’s K-12 teachers with Educator Saturdays.

Educator Saturdays provide North and South Carolina educators (grades K-12) the chance to experience Discovery Place Science, Discovery Place Nature and Discovery Place Kids with complimentary admission for all educators plus one guest.

Educator Saturdays give teachers the opportunity to explore an array of exhibitions, labs, live programming and films that are offered daily, and consider how these experiences enhance student learning. From hands-on lab demonstrations on innovative technology to live animal interactions and imaginative role playing, our Museums help educators meet demanding curriculum requirements by offering engaging, state-of-the-art educational experiences.

Educator Saturdays will be held during regular Museum hours on Saturday, September 7, 14, 21, and 28. Educators must present their school ID or NCDNPE homeschool certificate to receive free admission and special offers. Where applicable, parking will be validated for educators on the day of their visit. Reservations are not required but educators should visit Admissions upon arrival to register and receive information and parking validation. For more information call 704.372.6261 x300 or email
