DISCOVER Activities

The Roots of Knowledge DISCOVER program is designed to engage children and teens in their educational experience. Through hands on interaction with the exhibit, we hope to encourage and inspire a connection between education and the outside world. Roots of Knowledge is a tool that will help teachers engage students both in and outside of the classroom. DISCOVER will serve as an introduction to UVU’s engaged education model for school aged children, the community, and other education programs.

The DISCOVER program consists of field trips and other activities addressing a number of different topics available for classroom and home use. The scavenger hunts and activity books are linked to the Utah Core standards so they may be easily applied to school curriculum. If you are interested in scheduling a field trip or virtual field trip please email our education intern at

Katie.Davis@UVU.edu for more information.

There are 3 levels within the DISCOVER program designed for different age groups:

" "Seed (beginner) designed for grades K-6

" "Sapling (intermediate) designed for grades 7-9

" "Tree (advanced) designed for grade 10-12

Each month, Roots of Knowledge releases a themed scavenger hunt for each level, Seed, Sapling, and Tree, as well as an additional scavenger hunt with no images for those seeking an extra challenge. These scavenger hunts will be available online and within the gallery* for use by children, families, and anyone wanting a hands-on Roots of Knowledge experience. Please send your questions, comments, and feedback to RootsofKnowledge@UVU.edu.

*Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic tours are appointment only and scavenger hunts will only be available upon request.
