Upcoming Ways to Support Science Center

With our summer camps over and the school year approaching, Explorit is planning several events for the coming months.  These events are excellent opportunities to support the science center and help keep it a fun and exciting place for children and the community.

 

The first upcoming event Explorit has coming up is a “Rummage Sale for Science”, on Saturday, September 7th, from 8am-2pm.  We are clearing out our storage spaces of past activities and equipment that we do not use.  Much of what we’ve found is still in decent shape and could be used in area classrooms, or as a decorative piece in a home.  We will have tables, chairs, storage racks, posters, t-shirts, plexi-glass, tools, and more.  Stop by Saturday morning on the September 7thand see if you can find a fun item to take home, all while supporting Explorit.  All proceeds will be used to purchase equipment for our new Light & Sound exhibit.

 

At the end of September, on the 29thwe have our Grand Opening for our next exhibit, Light & Sound.  Members and Donors have an exclusive look from 12-1pm, with everyone welcome from 1-5pm. Explorit specialized in offering hands-on science education to not only students, but for scientists of all ages. Help Explorit with making our next gallery spectacular by sponsoring the exhibit, more information at http://www.explorit.org/form-resources/Gallery%20Sponsorships.

 

Spooky Science will be back! Mark your calendars for Explorit’s annual Spooky Science event.  One night only, on Saturday, October 26 from 6-9pm.  Check out activities form our main Light & Sound activity, as well as some extra spooky activities and experiments.  Come in costume and receive $1 off admission price.  More details to follow, keep an eye on our website for more information as we get closer.

 

One of the best ways to not only support Explorit, but science education for students is to book an Explorit program for your school.  We offer programs at both our site and yours in a variety of topics and times.  Find out more about our programs at http://www.explorit.org/programs.  Explorit also hosts an after-school Nature Bowl team, which meets weekly, beginning on September 19 and run until the spring.

 

Lastly, support Explorit by becoming a member.  Memberships last for one year and provide a variety of benefits.  Gain free entry to our regular public hours throughout the year, as well as entries to other museums globally with the Association of Science and Technology passport program.  Receive discounts on camps, workshops, and events, such as the ones mentioned above.  There are countless ways for you to support Explorit, all of which will help us continue to operate and thrive.
