Learning about science in a museum is safer than experiencing it firsthand by accidentally ingesting a science textbook. Embrace science with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a family day pass to Discovery Center of Idaho (a $35 value). Family passes are valid for up to six immediate family members.
Discovery Center of Idaho's hands-on exhibits foster fond memories and expand understanding of science, technology, engineering, and math in adults and children. Visitors explore temporary and permanent exhibits, such as a 7-foot-tall, made-to-order tornado, an unbreakable bubble wall, and a Bernoulli Blower, which suspends large objects in midair using airflow and a rotating staff of invisible NBA players. Children 5 and younger hone cooperative play skills amid tyke-size displays of play food in the Discovery Market. Visitors can also peruse the educational games, books, and toys in The Science Store, which peddles many items for fewer than $5.
Discovery Center of Idaho's expertly engineered doors are within walking distance of the downtown transit hub. Parents can cultivate further learning through home activities and educational videos regularly updated on the center's website.
