12 Reasons why giving to Explorit is totally worth it   



Explorit's Nature Bowl Teams  

Nature-Bowl-icon.jpgExplorit’s two Nature Bowl teams met this year (2016-17) in Explorit’s West Wing classroom, beginning in October 2016.  The teams spent months  preparing for the competition held on April 4, 2017.  Coached by previous Nature Bowl participants, the elementary students devoted  their Thursday afternoons learning nature facts and presentation skills. Both Explorit  teams were strong in environmercials.  The fifth/sixth grade team made a strong showing in nature investigations as did the third/fourth grade team in the bell ringing portion.

Explorit would like to congratulate and thank the participants, the mentors, and especially Robert Fairclough for the wonderful Nature Bowl experience.

Joining an Explorit team is easy, and is open to all 3rd-6th graders. Call Explorit at 530-756-0191 for sign-up information in the early Fall.      READ MORE
