Group tour of our current exhibit facilitated by an Explorit educator.

Under the guidance of an Explorit educator, your students will question, investigate and discover as they enjoy a stimulating lesson and exploration of the hands-on Exhibition topic. Each student is offered a "Search and Find" guide, directing them from station to station as they complete each task to find the answers. Our interdisciplinary exhibitions are designed to strengthen and support your students' science and math education.
