Rating: 5

Explorit is an innovator and leader in providing open-ended, discovery and hand-on programs for kids and families in Northern California. For nearly 30 year I've been contributing to this tremendous non-profit and have served as a volunteer, Board member and always as a dedicated donor! Explorit's programs reach as many as 18 counties each year through traveling programs such as evening family events called "Science in Your World", "Health in Your World"and during daytime hours through its "Classroom Adventures" programs. Check out Explorit's website for all these (and more!) programs and especially click on dive into a newly launched "Community Science Project"- "Spiders in Your World"! You can take a brief "Spider Attitude" survey and find out really interesting things about these often maligned- but alway intriguing- creatures! If you live in the Northern California area or are just visiting, take time to bring your children, yourself- the whole family and friends to one of the several inspiring events coming up in 2013, or just drop in during public hours...and become a member!
