DISCOVERY CENTER

The Discovery Center is an interactive, simulated program where students re-enact a crisis that occurred during President Reagan’s first term in office. Students role play President Reagan, key Executive Branch members, military officials, and the press who covered this story. Based upon information given to them, students engage in decision making in realistic, scaled replicas of the Oval Office, Command Decision Center, and the Press Room.

This popular and highly regarded simulated experience engages students in active role play, analysis, and collaborative decision making. This curriculum is built upon the California Content Standards and Frameworks.

Please note - Discovery Center tours include a tour of the museum. You do not need to book a separate tour.
