Science with Style

Thank you for $240,000!

Thank you so much for coming to the Science with Style Gala which took place on March 10th, 2023! Together, we raised $240,000 for a “new” Discovery Center of Idaho. We are humbled by the tremendous support that everyone in attendance provided for our visionary project, whether by sponsoring a table, raising a paddle, or bidding on a silent or live auction item.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to everyone who helped us beat our goal of raising $200,000 this year. We couldn’t do this without our fabulous sponsors, volunteers, donors and board members. We’ll keep you informed as our building renovation project moves forward, and in the meantime, come on down to the Discovery Center of Idaho to check out The Fans Strike Back Exhibition. You might even run into our friend, R2-D2, while you’re here!

You can learn more about our future plans by visiting our Capital Campaign web page. If you would like to see an in-depth presentation of our campaign plans, please contact Lydia Bassett, Development Director.

The Reimagined Discovery Center Will Have...

Expanded Young Learners Space

Expanding our Young Learners area addresses a need for families with children under age 4 to have fun with STEM. Through intentionally designed play opportunities, young children can build prior knowledge and awareness of STEM concepts that can make later classroom learning more effective.

Fabrication Workshop & Classroom Spaces

With a new learning and production lab, offering access to state of the art equipment along with safe spaces for creative problem solving, we look forward to expanding our impact on teen audiences, providing them with tools they can use to apply critical thinking, leadership, and technical STEM skills into real-world settings.

Expanded Galleries

These updated spaces will keep us adaptable to global trends in education and reach new audiences by way of school age competitions in STEM design and creativity, new internship opportunities, and a world-class library of accessible online and virtual learning resources for enrichment across the State of Idaho and beyond.
