Our mission at Discovery World is to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. We are in extraordinary times that call for the space and distance that would not allow us to hold the true, celebratory gala experience to which you may be accustomed. In line with our mission, now is the time to be creative with our fundraising efforts that put technology and innovation into practice. While we understand that some may be disappointed in missing the true gala experience, rest assured that we plan to bring it back and better than ever in 2021. In the meantime, please join us in a true, modern-day celebration of technology and innovation, that reflects the reality of science in a global pandemic.
