Discovery Education Station (DES) is located at 248 South Central Avenue in downtown Marshfield. They are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that focuses on providing bringing STEM and STEA2M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Agriculture, and Math) programming to Marshfield.

(DES) began in 2020 after founder Linda Roehrborn Rodriguez, a Marshfield native, wanted to bring her training as a bio-oceanographer, a simulated astronaut with NASA, and an Air Force officer to her hometown.

“We are here for the community. We provide a safe place with inclusive programming for everyone. Our experienced staff and volunteers cater to ALL kids, including those with disabilities, homeschooling groups, and underprivileged families.”

-Linda Roehrborn Rodriguez, Founder of Discovery Education Station-

DES provides hands-on, experiential learning opportunities that cater to diverse learning styles and abilities through after-school clubs, camps, and various classes. The organization also offers family-oriented events that encourage parents and guardians to get involved in their children’s education and learn alongside them. This programming is designed to be fun and engaging while also teaching valuable skills that will be useful for years to come.
