Explorit Science Center is a one-of-a-kind organization that continues, through good times and bad, to successful fulfill their mission to bring science (STEM based activities) based hands-on programs to their local community and to 17 surrounding counties! Explorit's Summer Science Camp is just one of the amazing programs that is sure to keep your children wanting more science! This summer was the first summer my son attended summer camp and I have never seen him more excited and interested in learning. He would talk to me the rest of the day about what he learned and why things happen. During the school year I would ask him, "How was your day at school?" "What did you learn?" A typical response would be, "oh, it was ok. We did some math...." After his days at Explorit I didn't even have to ask, he volunteered all the information he had soaked up with enthusiasm and a need for more! My many thanks to Explorit and their staff for engaging our children in learning, questioning, discovery and building a sense of self confidence in our future leaders.

The staff at Explorit are real heroines and heroes. They provide an essential service to Davis and its neighboring communities, supplementing science education in the schools and fostering the spirit of inquiry among the public at large. I have volunteered a little and been to a several of their public events and I am proud to have them in my adopted home town.
