Thank You to our Volunteers


By Sara Thompson

Special to the Enterprise



Explorit has had another successful year of providing science education to the Davis community and surrounding areas.  Explorit is only successful because of our amazing team of volunteers who help us with countless tasks.  Not only do they help us with teaching during events, camps, workshops, and birthday parties, but they also help us sort and put away materials donated by the community.  They help us with maintenance and rehab of our school programs, docents during our public hours, and lead our Nature Bowl team.  We want to recognize these wonderful people who take time out of their lives to help us out and keep us up and running.


Explorit heartily thanks our volunteers of 2019: Aakash Mishra, Abdullah Riaz, Almas Khan, Amy Shu, Anabelle Sweeney, Angelo Moreno, Anika Kulkarni, Apurva Mishra, Aricia Huo, Aubrey Brosnan, Bob Fairclough, Bohart Museum of Entomology, Calvin Domier, Cameron Hakim-Elahi, Caroline Chilcott, Caroline Johnson, Catherine Chow, Charissa Zeigler, Cheryl Cook, Claudia O'Brien, Cole Hanstad, Cory Kodira, Dario Cavaliere, David Diaz, Derek Wu, DHS Citrus Circuits Robotics Team, Elika Kiani, Evan Lee, Evelyn Cheng, Fiona Duong, Frank Preuss, Gabi Caceres, Gabi Skilling, Gharam Alsaedi, Gracie Westergaard, Grant Huez, Hallie Burrows, Hind Omer, Isha Thoreson, Jack Maurantonio, Jackson Feldwick-Jones, Jason Guo, Jocelyn Chen, Jordan Thoennes, Josh Jaison, Joshua Santoyo, Julie Knoepfler, Juliet Johnson, Kai Honda-Scully, Katelyn Vo, Krish Kulkarni, Krystabelle Lor, Lauren Lee, Lindsey Su, Lori Hansen, Margot Thompson, Martin Rincon, Max Hays, Max Maurantonio, Megan Spangler, Mesara Jayaleth, Mia Gunasekera, Mia Mangney, Mick Finn, Morgan Kong, Nithmi Jayasundara, Noah Breuning, Proma Khan, Ralph Washington, Jr., Randy Carney, Rebecca Acoba, Riley Lui, Robin Houston, Saad Malik, Sadia Chowdhury, Sarah Maranta, Sarah Son, Sean Gao, Sean Ira, Serena Kim, Shobha Khanna, Shuhao Liang, Sithmi Jayasundara, Steve Bick, Sylvia Rodriguez, Tabatha Yang, Tara Reddy, Tate Chatfield, Teo Honda-Scully, Thomas Ryan, UCD Dept. of Biomedical, Engineering, Veronica Scott, Vinita, Domier, Vinita Saxena, Walsh Klineberg, Weiran Guo, Yaseen Al Zubidi, Yoonsun Shin, Zenan Vong, Zuriel Joven.
