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.
