Explorit was my first job in the museum/science center field and I couldn't have asked for a better start. The people I worked with were simply fantastic and it gave me exposure to all the different aspects of running a non-profit from marketing to managers. Explorit is small in size, but large in impact and the level of professionalism and passion is unsurpassed. They really serve the greater Sacramento area, not just Davis where they happen to be based. They are a creative, hands-on science center much like the Exploratorium, but locally grown. It is amazing that they accomplish so much on such a small, efficient budget.

I was a volunteer and then a science educator at Explorit for about a year and half. The staff is great and so dedicated to what they do. I can personally speak for the amazing effect that hands-on science education has on kids--and their parents too! I wish that every kid (and parent) could spend some time at Explorit or in one of our outreach classrooms around northern CA each week. Explorit never had much money, but it never seemed to be a problem. We did great things with what we had.
