Student Advisory Board

We need your help! We’re looking for student leaders (age 13-18) in the Treasure Valley who wish to provide insight and ideas for STEAM programming to the community through the Discovery Center of Idaho. Student leaders can make a valuable and lasting impact in the Treasure Valley by collaborating and advising on current and future program offerings to support STEAM interest in traditional underrepresented populations.

Teacher Professional Development

Our focus is to provide strategies to make real-world connections, explore creative avenues and encourage problem-solving in STEM learning. Teaching strategies include lectures, classroom discussions, activity simulations, lesson development and practice in the Discovery Center of Idaho space.
