2020-2021 STUDENT VOUCHERS

We are excited to launch the new Student Voucher option for schools to take the place of large group field trips during the 2020-2021 school year.  We hope that the student vouchers will amplify the usual school field trip experience by extending STEM learning beyond the classroom to the home, for a more flexible, whole-family experience. 

Student Vouchers can be purchased in bulk by classroom teachers, districts, micro schools or homeschool pods with a minimum of 7 school-age students in the class for individual distribution to students.

Here is some quick information to get you started:

EACH VOUCHER OFFERS:

  • Flexible student access to the Discovery Center of Idaho’s exhibitions: King Tut: Treasures of the Tomb and TINKER THE T-REX!
  • Discounted 50% off admission for one adult per student voucher (every additional visitor pays full price admission)
  • Access to our Educator Resource Guide and a gallery guide, which can be used in the classroom to compliment your visit!

PROGRAMS REQUIREMENTS & COST

  • Must be a K-12 educational group
  • Payment is needed before your arrival

2020-2021 School Year Exhibitions and Pricing:

NEEDS-BASED SCHOLARSHIPS. Additional needs-based scholarships are available for qualifying groups.
