Educational and fun things around boise area?

I am bringing a bunch of high schoolers there for a robotics competition in march. Some of them have been there before, and we've done the usual college tour, discovery center...what else is there to do?

HELP!

I think the kids might think the Old Penitentiary is cool - ours did.

Charley it was not my intent to break any rules just a suggestion. Might I also suggest a tour of the state capitol, a walk through freak alley, a visit to the basque museum, a trolley tour, Ann Frank Memorial, MK nature center, art museum, black history museum, history museum, historical walking tour of downtown.

Nope I do not. I am a life long resident of Boise, a history buff and a tour guide and thought my suggestions would be helpful.
