WATER YOU DOING THIS SUMMER?!
Boise, ID - *Read in the voice of Don Lafontaine (aka like a movie trailer)* "In a land called Boise, the summer sun scorched in the sky. After years of cooling off in air-conditioned super stores and movie theaters, Idaho's residents were running out of new ways to beat the heat. That's when the Discovery Center of Idaho and SUEZ decided something must be done. Boise needed science. And not just any science, a science that could quench the thirst for knowledge on a hot summer day. So, together they went to work. Laboring tirelessly in The Discovery Center's Micron Innovation Lab making prototype after prototype. They were creating water vortexes, recycled water bottle light brights ten times bigger than your favorite 90s toy, and augmented reality sandboxes. The Discovery Center and SUEZ were aspiring to keep the community cool (in more ways than one) with hands-on science. Thus, “H2Whoa!” was complete! Are you ready to dive into the world of H2O?"
Water is precious, scarce, fascinating, and essential for life. With a dozen unique interactive exhibits, The Discovery Center’s immersive exhibition keeps water science fresh. Do you ever wonder which household item uses the most water? Or which animal can survive months without a single drop of it? Did you know a giant water pump can pump 150,000 gallons of water per second? Find out more at H2Whoa! this summer! Bring your friends, the kids, your parents, heck, bring the whole neighborhood! Because this exhibition is going to be floods of fun! H2Whoa! is making its splash in Idaho’s only hands-on science center on June 23rd, 2017.
Disclaimer to parents: Kids will not walk out of this exhibition soaking wet. No change of clothes required.
H2Whoa is made possible by our presenting sponsor, SUEZ, and our exclusive media partner, KBOI 2.
