Discovery West Nova
DCI Franchise

Discovery West Nova is poised to be a transformative institution in the community. As the first of its kind in rural Nova Scotia, Discovery West Nova will play a pivotal role in shaping the educational landscape of the region. Discovery West Nova will start as a Mobile roadshow van bringing educational experiences directly to communities and transition into summer camps and ultimately the establishment of a science centre facility. The science centre will integrate seamlessly into the local education system, introducing people of all ages to interactive STEAM learning. Within a rural ecosystem like West Nova Scotia, the learning is often more focused, and the youth involved are encouraged to think “outside the box” and innovate at every opportunity. West, Nova Scotia has a proud heritage and culture that can be taught as part of STEAM education. In West Nova Scotia, our programming can reflect ocean science studies, the UN Dark Sky designation, Indigenous teachings, and more. Beyond its educational impact, the centre aims to enhance tourism in the region, contributing to the cultural and economic growth of West, Nova Scotia. 

Beaty Centre for Marine Biodiversity
Powered by DCI

The Beaty Centre for Marine Biodiversity, set to open at Dalhousie University in 2025, is a first-of-its-kind interactive ocean and science discovery centre that will offer exceptional educational and research experiences for both the Dalhousie community and beyond. Students, Nova Scotia visitors, and curious local residents will be welcomed into the Beaty Centre to learn about the innovative work being conducted by Dalhousie researchers, dedicated to protecting our vital ocean resources.

The centre will be housed on the first and second floors of the Steele Ocean Sciences Building, the university’s hub of marine biology and marine biodiversity research. The Beaty Centre will be operated by Discovery Centre International in collaboration with Dalhousie University.

Sable Island Institute
DCI Consulting Contract

Discovery Centre International is collaborating with the team at the Sable Island Institute to develop an exhibit experience or facility that showcases the amazing work and collections that represent Sable Island. One of our first collaborations is relocating 600 horse skulls from Sable Island to Discovery Centre and developing a learning experience around these amazing artifacts. Sable Island is a destination of rich scientific significance that should be shared and celebrated nationally and internationally. Sable Island Institute and Discovery Centre International are working together to facilitate partnerships with rural innovation incubators, to ensure all Nova Scotians have access to Sable Island Institute’s experiences and knowledge.
