Program Overview

Explora is an innovative experiential learning center with a mission of creating opportunities for inspirational discovery and the joy of lifelong learning through interactive experiences in science, technology, and art. Explora addresses its mission by providing exhibit activities and inquiry-based classroom programs that illuminate basic concepts and engage people of all ages with the tools and equipment related to scientific phenomena. At Explora, families engage with educational, science-rich materials in personal spaces; they get interested in science by manipulating a wide range of variables and engaging in shared learning. Parents see their children as capable and interested science learners, and everyone has an opportunity to develop his or her own thinking about the basic processes and materials investigated and used by science, technology, and art.
