Invite Explorit into your classroom to provide guided hands-on experiences for your students. After a brief introductory discussion with an Explorit educator, students will rotate through four activity stations, each with interactive activities and explorations to stimulate curiosity, and encourage investigation and problem solving. 

All programs are aligned with state and national standards.
