The Discovery Center of Idaho has received a $330,000 gift from the Micron Technology Foundation to fund capital upgrades and underwrite the next exhibitions designed and built onsite. The Discovery Center’s workshop, where exhibitions are built, is slated for a complete renovation in 2015 and will be named the Micron Innovation Exhibit Lab.
“When missions align and long-term partnerships form, incredible things happen for this community,” said Discovery Center Executive Director Kristine Barney, in a news release.
The Foundation’s gift is the single largest private contribution to the Discovery Center.
“This grant will move the Discovery Center’s mission and visitor experience forward,” Micron Foundation Executive Director Dee Mooney said in a news release. “More than ever, it will be a place capable of sparking a passion for science discovery, helping to inspire and develop the next-generation of engineers and scientists.”
