BRICKS!

OPEN NOW!

BRICKS! is a new 3,000 square foot, highly interactive exhibition that is open now at the Discovery Center of Idaho! The hands-on exhibits have been designed and built by the Discovery Center’s Exhibits Team in the Micron Innovation Lab located within the Center.

BRICKS! ignites curiosity in design and engineering processes while visitors build, create, and imagine, developing a new appreciation for this timeless classic building block. With over a dozen STEM-based, hands-on exhibits and activities, and remarkable displays of brick creations from local artists, BRICKS! takes this iconic favorite to new heights and is sure to capture the minds and hearts of visitors of all ages.

A big THANK YOU to our presenting sponsor: Idaho STEM Action Center!

 

Also a big THANK YOU to the Idaho LEGO® User Group (IdahoLUG), for sharing your talented members and artwork with us and to POWER Foundation for their support!
