Sparking a lifelong curiosity for science through interactive exploration. 

The Palouse Discovery Science Center brings interactive science and learning experiences to people of all ages. We are a non-profit organization whose purpose is to further the public’s understanding of science and technology through the use of educational programs, exhibits, teaching collections, and activities which emphasize the physical participation of individuals. The offerings of the PDSC will support and enhance science in both formal and informal situations involved with lifelong learning.


EveryBODY Healthy - Our lifelike hospital exhibit, where children transform into doctors and care providers and learn about health and the body through dramatic play and dress up. This is a permanent exhibit sponsored by Pullman Regional Hospital, Center for Learning and Innovation.

Art Studio - Self-directed art room stocked with materials, supplies and inspiration. Add to our community art wall!

Nano - Permanent exhibit exploring the science behind nanotechnology and how we use it in our daily lives.
