The Discovery Center of Idaho is an interactive, hands-on science center with both permanent and rotating exhibitions. Although the Discovery Center's mission statement embraces lifelong learning, it's an especially excellent place for the preK-6 crowd to learn about science, math, and technology in a way that engages their five senses and their sense of curiosity.
The Discovery Center also hosts Science Café, a moderated discussion on contemporary scientific issues; recent topics have included ethanol, Idaho's amphibians, and H1N1.
