The Discovery Centre is a non-profit, registered charitable organization that is passionate about its mission to bring STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) to life through fun, interactive learning experiences.

From its beginnings as a travelling science show to its spectacular new home on the Halifax Waterfront, the Discovery Centre has grown a lot over 30 years of operation.

But through it all, the Discovery Centre has stayed true to its vision: using its facility, people and passion to demonstrate how STEAM can empower our youth, grow Nova Scotia’s knowledge-based economy and inspire an innovative culture by showcasing our best and brightest.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying. Lisa Shannon, A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman
