Explorit Sends Out Summer with a Blast

Special to the Enterprise


It’s back with a bang--Explorit’s Summer Science Blast, our annual celebration of the end of summer. Save the date of Sunday, August 27 for a full day of family fun at this amazing festival in and around Explorit Science Center from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.


Our favorite performers from the U.C. Davis Chemistry Department and Physics Club will wow the crowd with a stunning science show. Plus, we’ll explore bees, raptors, robotics and drones.


Peter Wagner’s Whymcycles will be on hand to provide an opportunity to take a one-of-a-kind cruise through Mace Ranch Park. Meet some of Explorit’s resident animals or enjoy some science crafts and building projects in our West Wing.


Solve an engineering challenge with household items and visit Explorit’s resident bee hive and see how our garden is growing to support bees and other pollinators. Enjoy a tasty snack from one of our food vendors, and be sure to check out some new developments in our museum gallery.


Explorit’s Summer Science Blast brings the Davis community together for a day-long celebration of science and family fun. Don’t miss this opportunity to check out the best of what Explorit has to offer.


Tickets are $10 ages 11 and up, $5 ages 5-10, children 4 and under are free. Tickets are available at or at the event. For more information call 530-756-0191.
