Give to Explorit for the Big Day of Giving, May 4, 2017
Explorit travels with valued, popular classroom science programs and family science nights to local and regional schools to turn a lens on the natural world and its ways for school children and their families. We do so with a tiny fleet of two small vans but both vans are old and beyond repair so our goal this year is to replace at least one of them. You can help.
Follow this link to read in more detail about the traveling and other programs at Explorit and then make your generous donation for the Big Day of Giving. You can do it today if you wish.12 Reasons why giving to Explorit is totally worth it
March for Science - Sacramento
Saturday April 22, 2017
Have you heard? Explorit staff and friends participated in the Sacramento March for Science on April 22 in solidarity with other Marches for Science which took place around the world on the same day. The mission of these marches is to celebrate a passion for science and to support and safeguard the scientific community. You don't have to be a scientist!. See: www.marchforsciencesacramento.com
Recent policy changes have called science-based information into question. Science research reports that were funded with government money are being systematically removed from government websites. Science is not a partisan issue. Science is fact-based and provides objective results. See: www.marchforsciencesacramento.com/principles-and-goals.html
