DHDC’s state-of-the-art HD Polycom system provides LIVE streaming of programs directly into classrooms nationwide!  All programs are fully interactive, allowing students and teachers to communicate with DHDC presenters in real-time!

Explosions, melting metal, and fire-eating?
It’s all in a day’s work at the Don Harrington Discovery Center!

What is Virtual Science LIVE?

Our distance learning sessions feature our Science Live! shows and guest lectures from paleontologist Dr. Aaron D. Pan.  Science Live! shows are 45 to 60-minute long. 

Funny, engaging, and jam-packed with learning, Science Live! will leave your students cheering for more!

All of our education programs align with both the TEKS (Texas) and the NGSS, and a cross-curricular Correlation Chart is available to view with each program we offer.

Serving our five-state region since 1976, DHDC’s interactive, hands-on science programs reach tens of thousands of participants through our Education Program each year.
