The Science Explorer program is a collection of experiments that blend academic content with curiosity-building activities. Using ordinary materials, students look at how things work and how they change. Science Explorer was created by the Exploratorium, San Francisco’s nationally recognized leader in inquiry-based, hands-on education.
