The Inasmuch Uncover-Discover Lab integrates STEM concepts with history in a highly interactive environment that stimulates learning and connects the past with the future. It is an academically oriented experience that is geared toward middle and high school students.
The Uncover-Discover Lab teaches the lessons learned from the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, including how those lessons have shaped the way Federal buildings are now constructed as well as new methods of crime investigation. Using large touch-screen tables, students work independently, then come together as a group to find solutions to their challenges – just as first responders to the Oklahoma City bombing had to work together in teams to save lives and investigate the crime. Currently, two lessons are available: Structures & Waves and Forensics & Investigation.
As well as meeting state history objectives, middle and high school teachers from all disciplines will be able to bring their students and meet state and national objectives focusing on STEM.
Available: Monday-Friday, 9am to 4pm
Ages: Middle School and High School Students
Maximum Per Group: 126 Students
Cost: Free with Museum admission.

Structures & Waves
Learn how to build structures that can withstand different types of natural and man-made disasters, such as a tornado, hurricane, earthquake or explosion. Work together in teams to discover what materials are best suited for the various types of disasters.
Forensics & Investigation
Become a crime scene investigator and help solve the worst case of domestic terrorism on American soil.
