Guess what?! H2Whoa! is BACK

Boise, ID - 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! Bring your friends, the kids, your parents, heck, bring the whole neighborhood! Because this exhibition is going to be gallons of fun! H2Whoa! is making a splash at the Discovery Center until fall 2018.

Disclaimer to parents: Kids will not walk out of this exhibition soaking wet. No change of clothes required.

Sponsors
H2Whoa! is made possible by our presenting sponsor, SUEZ, and our exclusive media partner, KBOI 2.

SUPPORT THE DISCOVERY CENTER OF IDAHO

We encourage people of all ages to actively participate in activities that foster lifelong STEM learning. Educational programs like Young Discoverers and summer camps offer hands-on exploration, and we get to see adults rekindle their passion for the sciences during special events and exhibitions. And that, that spark of learning and excitement, is why we do what we do.

There are many ways that you can play a part in helping the Discovery Center of Idaho remain a viable, valued asset to our community. Donations from charitable individuals and corporate sponsors help fund special programs, new exhibits and more. Our volunteers, who give selflessly of their time and knowledge, enhance our guests' experiences. And you, the members of our community, play an important role when you purchase an admission ticket or membership. With your support, we can preserve and promote our mission.
