The Discovery Center of Idaho exists in large part thanks to the dedication, determination and foresight of the Junior League of Boise, whose members recognized the need for hands-on science education in Idaho. In the fall of 1988, the Discovery Center of Idaho had its grand opening, with more than 27,000 people visiting in just 3 months – further confirming the community’s desire for a science/industry center.
We inspire lifelong interest and learning in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and the arts because we believe learning is fun and expands minds and lives.
Because of the opportunities we provide, our community is more scientifically literate, curious and empowered to explore. We prioritize inclusion, diversity, equity and access to strengthen our organization and to help us better understand, connect with and serve our community.
