Discovery Labs
Kachemak Bay Research Reserve

Discovery Lab in the lab classroom.

The Kachemak Bay Research Reserve's (KBRR) Discovery Labs are innovative education programs provided to students throughout the school year. Each Discovery Lab - situated in the AK Islands & Ocean Visitor Center's lab classroom - focuses on a single topic and features 8 or more learning stations with hands-on and inquiry-based activities, research updates, lots of touchable objects and organisms, and more. Depending on the topic, the students' experience may be self-directed (allowing each student to devote as much time as they choose at each of the learning stations) or led by KBRR staff.
