Encourages problem-solving skills

Subject varies according to grade level

Real science specimens

Aligned with Next Generation Science Standards

Beginning January 3, 2022...

Programs In Your Classroom Or At School Site

Four topics, an array of specimens, activities and information. The scope and focus of each subject varies according to grade level.

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.

Topics
