Explorit is a great place for children to discover science and nature. We brought our son for the first time when he was just about 3. Seeing him learn while playing was amazing. He also got to touch a large boa constrictor for the first time and to our surprise, he loved it. Now that he's 5 and more curious than ever, we're very pleased to see him interact with the staff, who's very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Explorit is such a great organization that's dedicated to enrich children's lives.

I remember every spring poring over the summer class catalogs from the City's recreation program, the University, the various art and music programs around town and... Explorit. OF COURSE science would be part of a Davis kid's summer plans. In fact, for many years, his favorites were the weeks spent at Explorit's various camps -- astronomy, science "magic," math games. I'm sure that combining science with fun was a huge part of why science is still his favorite subject (high school!).
