Curiosity Never Closes: Please Make a Gift Today!

As Idaho’s only hands-on science center, our work is more important than ever. Science and an informed public are humanity’s best hopes in addressing Covid 19, climate change, and other threats. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Discovery Center of Idaho depends on support from the community, especially now. Together, we can forge a path forward and continue to serve our region by igniting curiosity and fueling a passion for discovery, experimentation, and critical thinking in all of us. Your support makes a galactic difference!

This year, as we experience the Covid 19 pandemic together, the nonprofit community needs your help more than ever. Here at the Discovery Center of Idaho, your gift will help:

  • Support home learning through DCI at Home, where everyone can access online resources, programs, and playlists
  • Enable access for all by removing barriers to participation in our programs and create opportunities for all Idaho students
  • Break down barriers by empowering and encouraging girls and women in STEM
  • Ensure new, touch-free exhibitions like Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, open now.


There is always something new happening: new programs to fund, new exhibitions to highlight, new young minds to nurture, and that means new opportunities for sponsorship! If your organization is interested in working with us to promote STEM education in our community, please contact us at
