Discovery Center of Idaho - Idaho's Hands On Science Center

For years, The Discovery Center of Idaho has inspired the Treasure Valley to engage the natural wonders of the world. We use hands-on learning tools to educate and instill a love of science and nature in the community.


Our mission is to inspire lifelong interest and learning in science, technology, engineering and math.


We celebrate scientific literacy, and seek to educate and facilitate an interest in the physical world by encouraging our visitors to explore our exhibits and the world around them, imagine the possibilities that knowledge can inspire, and discover the scientist within. We offer interactive, hands-on exhibits and educational programs that make STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning exciting and tangible for people of all ages and from all walks of life. In cooperation with local education, industry and research organizations, DCI works to foster an educated workforce and an informed electorate in the stewardship of our planet.

Plan Your Visit

With so much happening at the Discovery Center of Idaho, it's a good idea to prepare so that you get to see and experience the programs, exhibits and events you don’t want to miss. Time your visit to include sitting in on one of our daily science demonstrations. Decide which day works best for you and the little ones to catch Young Discoverers, and then hire a sitter and come to the next Adult Night sans kids. And before you go, be sure to stop into our gift shop featuring hundreds of unique toys and gifts (perfect for that upcoming birthday party - that we can host!) Wherever your interests lie, or whatever your mission is, we strive to make each trip to DCI memorable, fun and engaging.
