Onsite Programs

The STEAM approach is an especially impactful way to introduce young children to the more traditionally rigorous STEM fields.

Theater Program

Located inside the renovated Theater, our exciting six-week after-school theatre program is held once a week on Friday evenings from 4:30 PM to 5:15 PM. Starting May 3rd and ending June 7th, this program is perfect for kids aged 5-12. Dive into the world of theatre through fun games and activities, and learn how to shine on stage! The program will culminate in a special performance for friends and family, showcasing the skills and talents learned throughout the program.

Steam Lab

Discovery Gateway’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) lab offers a wide variety of real-world, inquiry-based, participant-focused, and engaging experiences. Programs may vary from short 10-15 minute introductory activities to more in-depth family learning experiences that can last 30 to 60 minutes. Local artists, scientists, and other community partners such as the Bureau of Land Management, U of U Science Department, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, and the Utah Division of Arts and Museums are a few of the community partners who have collaborated with the museum. We strongly believe that through interaction with STEAM exhibits and programs, participants can experience wonder, inquiry, experimentation, problem-solving, and most importantly, learning through play.

The STEAM Lab is proudly sponsored by Collins Aerospace and the Williams Foundation.
