Our work benefits from a robust and dynamic array of community partnerships, including:
- Discovery Magnet School – We partner with our neighboring school to offer a host of unique enrichment opportunities, bringing students to visit us frequently, and visiting them as our main site for implementation of our Discover NASA grant.
- Outdoor Ventures & the Adventure Park at Discovery Museum – a great partner and supporter of Museum programs, the Park has routinely supported Museum fundraisers with generous donations of climbing passes.
- University of Bridgeport – UB and Discovery have partnered to launch high-altitude balloons, and to promote the excitement of engineering with fun hands-on activities that illustrate scientific principles.
- Sacred Heart University – SHU students have provided one of our most consistent sources of volunteers. Students have also joined our staff as part-time employees and birthday party hosts, offering remarkable hospitality and service.
- Beardsley Zoo – We have partnered with the zoo to bring animals to the Museum as part of numerous special event days and for our STEM Summer Programs.
