The Discovery Cube in Los Angeles is a relatively new facility. For over 35 years, the Discovery Science Foundation, a non-profit organization, has made science learning fun through its first location Discovery Cube in Orange County.
Both Discovery Cube in LA and OC share this mission: “to inspire and educate young minds through engaging science-based programs and exhibits to create a meaningful impact on the communities we serve.”
SuburbanMamas.com contributor Marie-France Arcilla took her 2-year old son for a fun morning spent at the Cube. Discovery Cube Los Angeles is located at 1800 Foothill Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 91342 For more information, visit discoverycube.org
According to Marie-France: “(At first) I was afraid that my son would be too young for most of it, but he actually could find something fascinating with at least one thing in every featured exhibit.”
