About Us:
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.

We hold the following values in the highest esteem and strive to incorporate them into all we do:
- Trust
- Professionalism
- Accountability
- Integrity
- Empowerment
- Responsibility
- Community Minded
- Fun

My granddaughter and both my girls and beautiful wife really enjoy going to the discovery center and if you get the season pass go as much as you want also gets you into other facilities like omsi in Oregon. I learn something new every time we go. Really teaches us about different things we don't think about all the time. Little things that make life so much easier. Highly recommend

We were visiting Boise and have a 7 year old who loves science so stopping here for an afternoon was a must do. The museum was great and we liked that the staff didn't hover so we were able to explore at our own pace. I think my husband and I had as much fun playing with the exhibits as the 7 year old!

My self and my four kids love this place. Between the rotating exhibits and the super helpful and friendly staff we have such a great time! Every Time! My kids are three, three, eighteen mo and eighteen mo and they love it still! Some concepts are over their heads but the active hands on activities keep them coming back for more. Dont be afraid of "age" this place has something for ALL ages!

What a fun place to have a birthday party! The kids enjoyed the free time to wander around and explore with their friends, and then the science demonstration that ended in ICE CREAM was a bit hit with the kids and adults too! Thank you!

Absolutely love this center for learning about the world around us. I went on the field trip with my son 4 years ago and with my daughter this year. Always a favorite trip.
