The Discovery Museum

Changing Perspectives with a Website Revamp

This Noble Deeds project turned the spotlight on the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery), which is devoted to inspiring life-long STEAM-focused learning.

Changing Perspectives with a Website Revamp

Creating a User Friendly Experience to Help Spread the Word

In a short time, the Discovery has positively impacted the community by providing fun and educational programs centered on STEM disciplines. The Discovery’s digital wish list included a new Content Management System, improved events listings and a chance to rebrand itself from a children’s museum to one that attracts a broad, general audience from across northern Nevada.

An Engaging Calendar of Events

The redesign features an enhanced calendar that makes it easier for visitors to find classes and events that inspire a love for science, math and more.

An Updated Content Management System

By adding a user-friendly CMS from WordPress, we helped the Discovery’s marketing team more easily maintain and update content without needing HTML/CSS experience. Now when the Discovery adds new events and exhibits, its team can quickly change the content on the website to reflect the newest additions.

Website Enhancements To Make A Difference

Modern Exhibitions

Customizable modules allow the Discovery to easily build content that reflects their latest exhibitions.

In The News

A newly integrated newsfeed shines light on the Discovery’s achievements and upcoming events.

Online Donations

The nonprofit’s new site offers users a more streamlined process for donating and volunteering their time.

Raising Awareness about the Museum for Visitors of All Ages

By donating a complete website overhaul and related services, we were able to improve the Discovery’s overall digital marketing effectiveness. These efforts shifted the perception of the Discovery as a children’s museum to something bigger for the northern Nevada community.

“Having a user-friendly, responsive and feature-rich website is an important part of the museum’s transformation from children’s museum to world-class, hands-on science center.”
