Hear more about :

  1. Discovery Education created a special channel within Discovery Education Experience—the Viruses and Outbreak Channel—featuring digital content that helps educators discuss the Coronavirus outbreak with students. This content includes timely updates on what the Coronavirus is, information on how infectious diseases spread, and essential guidelines for staying healthy.
  2. Discovery worked with content partners to make the Viruses and Outbreak Channel available to the communities our U.S. school systems serve so that parents, caregivers, and other adults have the same access to the materials children are being taught in schools.
  3. For U.S. schools or school systems that are not currently using Discovery Education resources, but are experiencing closures due to the Coronavirus, the company is offering free access to Discovery Education Experience through the remainder of the school year.
