WHAT WE DO

Discovery Center of Idaho is Idaho’s only hands-on science center. We provide fun, interactive STEM learning by bringing the community over 150 hands on exhibits, non-traditional educational programming for all ages, and a safe space for all to explore. Located in the heart of Boise’s downtown, we’ve been inspiring lifelong interest and learning in science, technology, engineering, and math since 1988.

The Discovery Center of Idaho is a private non-profit 501c3 corporation existing without state or federal funding, dependent on Tax deductible contributions from community minded citizens, corporations, and foundations. Give today!

MISSION AND VISION

Our mission is to inspire lifelong interest and learning in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We believe learning is fun and expands minds and lives. Because of the opportunities we provide, our community is more scientifically literate, curious, and empowered to explore.

PROGRAMS & EVENTS

EVENTS AT THE CENTER

We host a variety of events here at the Discovery Center of Idaho: Young Discoverers, Adult Nights, and friendly challenges among members and frequent visitors. No matter the age or activity, we have a lot of fun and are certain we have something on our calendar sure to entertain and create lasting memories.
