Recruiting Now for Explorit's Nature Bowl Teams  

Nature-Bowl-icon.jpgLooking for a fun learning adventure for your children? Explorit’s Nature Bowl teams are beginning Thursday, October 5, at 3:45pm with weekly meetings. Participants work with coaches to create an Enviro-mercial focusing on an ecological disaster, and prepare a proposal for a solution to the problem. They also learn the bell ringer game, the team relay game, and the identification of nature’s wonders. Skills learned culminate with a spring competition in Spring 2018. 

Joining an Explorit team is easy, and is open to all grades 3-6. Cost is $20 per participant. Call Explorit at 530-756-0191 for sign-up information.    READ MORE
