Admission to any of these special exhibits is included in the cost of your general admission.

Everyday Fun

There are special events each day that visitors can take part of. All daily science lessons are geared toward the younger children, but anyone is welcome to join in. It is certain that there will be something you will enjoy seeing.

During the summer months, there is a summer camp experience available. You can visit the summer camps, whether you are a resident or not and even if you are not a member. There is some variation in the prices that you will pay between member or not member, resident and non-resident. The various summer camps are geared toward certain age groups at different times to ensure that each child enjoys it as much as they can. The camps include, “Kitchen Chemistry” for ages 1st through 3rd grade, “Awesome Animals” for 4th through 6th, “Go Green Camp” 1st through 3rd, and “Robo Camp” for kids who are between the 1st and 6th grade.

For the Older Kids

Even middle school aged kids can enjoy Project SOS which is the Science of Sustainability.

There are hands on activities, challenges, and more through this one program that is guaranteed to teach children with fun.


Showing Your Support

There are a variety of ways for you to show your support of science. Perhaps your child would enjoy having a birthday party with their friends while not even realizing that they are all learning. If you enjoy science enough, you can become an active member in the Palouse Discovery Science Center and show kids the joys of learning about the world around them. You may also choose to donate so that the science center can continue to bring joy and learning to the community.

What do you think that you and your child will learn together during a day spent here? Will you enjoy the planetarium or choose one of the other exciting ways to learn through interaction? With science and a discovery center, anything is possible.
