Saturday, April 18, 2015 - UC Davis Picnic Day 

 This year the Explorit Science Center is planning a float for the UC Davis Picnic Day parade on Sat. April 18.  We would love to have you and your children participate.  We will be having float-building parties April 15-17.  It is a simple design with chicken wire and tissue paper and everyone is invited to help. Call Explorit at 530-756-0191 to let us know you’d like to help with construction.

Adults only:

Wind down from the Picnic Day festivities with a pint at Sudwerk Brewing Company Dock Store, where a portion of their tap sales for the evening will go to benefit Explorit Science Center. The Dock is where Sudwerk's brewers get to test out new brews. There’s always something interesting to try!
