SUPPORT THE DISCOVERY CENTER OF IDAHO

The Discovery Center would not exist without support from volunteers, members, charitable givers, and sponsors. Volunteers contribute their time, energy, and knowledge. Members support our camps, our special events, and the Science Store. Our givers and sponsors guarantee in-house produced exhibitions, discounted and free field trips, and outreach to underserved Idaho communities. Each play a role in helping the Discovery Center achieve its mission.

Please consider contributing if you can. Volunteer and have the opportunity to demonstrate hands-on science. Become a member and show the children in your life the science of fun. Give and help the Discovery Center continue to provide quality educational opportunities.

 "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted" -Aesop

VOLUNTEER WITH US

People joke that volunteers run the Discovery Center. It's only partially a joke. Volunteers started the Center over 25 years ago and are vital to its success today. Our volunteers provide invaluable time, knowledge and experience to our programs. We couldn't do without them. We strive to make time spent here, as it fits in to individual schedules, something that enhances the lives of our volunteers.
