Discovery Lab was founded in 2011 by Natalia Parker and Tosha Woods as an effort to bring more diverse educational opportunities to Kittitas County. As educators and parents, both Parker and Woods envisioned creating learning environments that were adaptive and able to provide authentic and meaningful engagement for students. Over the 10 years of its existence, Discovery Lab has continued to evolve to meet the needs of the learners and the community. Our current model focuses on creating meaningful learning through the use of Project-Based Learning, multi-age learning cohorts, and utilizing practices that create humanizing classrooms.
