Join our team of curious, innovative and knowledgeable volunteers who inspire our visitors every day!

Volunteers at the Discovery Center of Idaho Encourage: Diversity and inclusion, Represent: Discovery Center of Idaho and our mission both in and beyond our galleries and Grow: in their personal STEM knowledge and encourage growth of STEM understanding in the community.

They are teachers, stay-at-home parents, students, retired engineers and more. You don’t have to be an expert to be a volunteer—if you are passionate about STEM, and love talking with and helping others, we’d love to have you.


Our volunteer opportunities are two hours long each and range from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. The tasks will consist of standing for the two hours and providing guidance, knowledge and support to the community as they enjoy the Center. Volunteering provides the opportunity for an individual to rapidly increase their knowledge in a variety of topics while influencing the community around them.
