Wednesday, August 5th | 8am-5pm

We have a crisis on our hands. 200,000 Idaho students need computers by August. Due to COVID-19, we have a massive educational challenge looming. Remote learning is the next normal. Help close the digital divide before school begins this fall.

The Discovery Center of Idaho is proud to help close this digital divide and serve as a drop-off location to collect the community's spare devices, such as laptops and tablets, to be donated to school districts to support students through their remote learning. Whether it's a tablet, an old laptop, or old computers from your business - we'll take them!

It's this easy!

  1. Search and gather for spare devices and accessories. Then, make sure they meet the minimum requirements to serve student needs.
  2. Make a quick stop through our parking lot 'drive-thru' on August 5th to donate while socially distanced. OR find another drop-off near you.
  3. Pat yourself on the back for helping Idaho close the divide!

Did we mention all donors at our location will be entered to WIN FOUR FREE DAY PASSES to visit King Tut: Treasures of the Tomb?!

4. Now get excited because you're entered to win AND your device is going to a student in need!

On behalf of our future leaders of STEM, thank you for your support! Learn more about how you can help close the divide at IDAHOBE.ORG.

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.
