Special to the Enterprise

 Explorit Science Center is a 501c3 which had its humble beginnings in 1982.  At that time a small group of individuals identified a need within the community to create inviting hands-on science explorations, which allowed people to engage in active learning to discover the wonders and benefits of science.  This April Explorit celebrates 30 years of involving people in science experiences that touch all our lives, but none of that would be possible without your support.  One simple way to support Explorit Science Center is by shopping at Nugget Markets.  Swiping a Nugget Scrip card every time you shop can earn Explorit up to 4% of your purchase.  It’s completely free for you, free for Explorit, and supports science education in our community.  Plus, if you register and use a Nugget Scrip card for Explorit before March 31, 2012, you could win a $50 gift card for Nugget Markets!  Here’s how it works: 

1. Pick up a Nugget Scrip card from Explorit.  Stop by our office at 3141 5th St. in Davis to pick one up in person.  We’re open Tuesday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  OR Have one mailed to your home.  Just email your name,preferred address, and phone number to and we’ll drop one in the mail for you.

2. Register your Nugget Scrip card online at and designate Explorit Science Center as the beneficiary.

3. Present your card to the cashier every time you shop at Nugget Markets or at the Food4Less in Woodland, Cameron Park, or Vallejo before yourtransaction is finalized.  Every time you present your card, Explorit receives a percentage of your purchase (details online at 

Between February 3 and March 31, 2012 use your card and on April 30, 2012 Explorit will randomly select one Nugget Scrip card user who has named Explorit Science Center as the beneficiary to win a $50 Nugget gift card.  Supplies are limited, so pick up and register your Nugget Scrip card for Explorit today and be sure to present it with every purchase! If you already have a Nugget Scip Card registered for Explorit, keep using it, you’re eligible too.  Current Explorit Board, staff and their family members are not eligible to win.
