Explorit Membership a Passport to World-Wide Discovery

This article appeared in the March 27, 2015 edition of the Davis Enterprise

As the weather gets warmer and the end of the school year draws closer, road trips and vacations are on the minds of many. But as you plan this year’s get-away, keep your local science center in mind. A membership with Explorit Science Center can be your ticket to great science explorations the world over.

As a member of the international Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC), Explorit is able to offer our members free or reduced admission to over 300 other science centers, nature centers and museums around the world. Wherever you’re headed this year, there’s bound to be an ASTC partner nearby.

A cross-country road trip could take you through Salt Lake City, Utah, home of the Clark Planetarium where you could check out a laser light show while learning about the Earth and its place in our solar system. Or cruise through Des Moines, Iowa for a stop at the Science Center of Iowa to launch a rocket or build an arch while discovering the world of physics.

Or perhaps your summer plans have you jet-setting internationally. ASTC’s passport program can take you all over the globe from the Gwacheon National Science Museum in South Korea to the Planetarium Science Center in Alexandria, Egypt. Explore science and technology at the Techmania Science Center in the Czeck Republic or plumb the depths at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.

If you’re staying closer to home, there’s still plenty of science fun to be had. Head for the coast with your ASTC passport and check out the Imagination Playground at the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito. Or take a trip to the Ingenuity Lab at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley to discover how scientists are tackling problems.

A membership with Explorit Science Center can open up a whole world of exploration and family fun. And with a variety of membership options, there’s something for everyone. An Explorit Family Membership covers two adults and all the children in their household for just $50 per year. Or if you’ve got grandkids coming to visit, consider a grandparents membership for two adults and all of their grandchildren, also just $50 per year.

For students and seniors we offer a discounted individual membership for $20 per year. We also have Circle Level memberships for additional donations starting at $75 per year, with additional benefits like a free copy of The Book of Science Days, and the privilege of bringing up to four additional guests to our museum for free. You can investigate all our different levels of membership online at www.explorit.org/join.
