Make a donation

Your contribution (by PayPal, Visa or MasterCard) will help Explorit continue to engage thousands of children and adults throughout the Sacramento region in science experiences that touch all our lives.

Your donations help support the science programs we provide to elementary schools in up to 18 counties. At many of them, the children receive little or no other science instruction.  Your support of our work in the past has made a difference for up to 75,000 people a year. Please give generously now to help make it possible for us reach those numbers and beyond.

For additional information please contact Explorit.
