Reviews for Explorit Science Center

Rating: 5 stars  

Explorit Science Center - where your children (and you) can discover that science is fun
Explorit Science Center - where your children (and you) can discover that science is play, intelligent, inquiring, inspiring play.
Explorit Science Center - where your children can experience discovery, and maybe most importantly in a democracy, learn to question the world.
I have been visiting Explorit for two decades, and still I find new exhibits, new discoveries, new ways to explore the world of science.

I first became involved with Explorit in 2001. I was a pediatrician in the local area at the time and was asked by Explorit to participate in a community group working closely with the Explorit staff to develop a new program called Health in Your World. The program aimed to provide science-based health education for children. I was new to Explorit but quickly became tremendously impressed with Explorit's mission and commitment to science education, it's unique "hands on" approach, it's attraction to families and children, and particularly to the creativity, enthusiasm and dedication of its staff. I have joyfully become more involved with Explorit and am still thrilled to see children exposed to the wonders of science and nature and developing critical-thinking skills in our hands on and play-based programs. By the way, Health in Your World has become a truly amazing program that allows children to work out science-based preventive health messages that lead them to adopt healthier, long lasting lifestyles.
