The WID community gathers daily at 3 p.m. to take a break, caffeinate and converse. Buzz Tea @ 3 is a monthly series that gathers perspectives on different topics focused on ideas and research. The Institute’s Twitter followers can also chime in by replying to @WIDiscovery, posting on its Facebook page or emailing us.

As members of the Discovery Building, we’re wondering what “discovery” means to our community.

Responses from Tea

“To bring the knowable closer to the light of understanding.”

“To uncover something from the past and/or future and bring it to the present.”

“It means, ‘Eureka!'”


“To make the unknown known.”

Responses from Twitter

“Discovery is an opening, a peeling back of a veil shrouding the world around you. It’s the light of knowing what is.”
