Discovery Labs – schedule
If you attended September 2013’s Fiesta del Rio event you might remember the popularity of the Discovery Zone area. In order to build on that excitement and further our goals in providing quality community education, the TRNERR Education Department is launching its first ever Discovery Labs program, a series of weeknight open houses to excite and engage the minds of our community in their own backyard.
