The Smithsonian Latino Center’s ¡Descubra! initiative began in the fall of 2011 as a featured component of the Center’s science-themed family programs. The ¡Descubra! component promotes STEM for youth, with a specific focus on Latino youth, by showcasing Latino role models in STEM fields and discussing career paths and different interests in these areas. Topic areas that have been presented range from: aviation and aeronautics, engineering and robotics, environmental sciences and wildlife conservation, to the biology of endangered species.
All Superhero Science Day activities are included with paid exhibit admission. For more information, please click here.
¡Descubra! is made possible in part, through program support provided by NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises. To learn more about our sponsor’s educational resources, please visit El Poder en Ti.
