Three decades of successful experience has shown that the most effective, feasible and practical way to provide quality, inspirational, science experiences to under-served students and families is through our traveling programs, which reach 20,000 elementary kids and their families at schools in 17 counties. These programs include popular day-time, in-class science topics as well as our unique "Family Science Nights" that fill multipurpose rooms with exciting hands on activities on science ("Science in Your World") and our newly developed environmentally oriented "Green World Healthy People" evening program. 
 
To sustain the positive impacts of those programs, and to continue providing young children (and families!) with critically important STEM-related experiences, our aging "workhorse" (but 17 years old!) cargo-type vans need replacing now! 
 
Our goal is to raise $40,000, which will provide one replacement vehicle critically needed to maintain hands-on science programs at schools in northern California. 
 
Explorit is very proud of our ability and capacity to "go where the kids and teachers need us"! Help us continue this most important and effective avenue for STEM-related discovery and learning! (We'd love to expand our "hybrid" fleet as well. 
 
 Since many programs are 50-100 miles away, most e-vehicles don't have the range and cargo space.) We'd be happy to work with a major car/truck dealer to accomplish this goal as well. In the next two months, we're working to secure matching funds of at least $10,000 to help secure the total funds we need. 
 
 Help us continue to succeed in giving kids the inspiration and opportunities they need to succeed in their educational careers and develop much needed critical thinking skills!
