Programs can be a combination of: 

  • Classroom Explorations (1 hour each) – Classroom Explorations are one-hour, experiential programs facilitated by Explora educators. Using an inquiry approach to learning, Explora educators involve every student in active exploration of physical materials. Our Classroom Explorations are benchmarked to the New Mexico State Standards. A full list of Classroom Programs can be found in Explora’s Guide to Educational Programs.
  • Family/Community Science (up to 3 hours) – A mini-Explora set up at your site! Explora educators will facilitate tabletop activities and experiments designed to engage a range of students or even entire families! Create flying contraptions out of paper cups and test their flight in a wind tunnel; test your engineering and balance skills to build a tall tower; and explore reflection, symmetry, and mirrors and much more!
  • Assembly Programs (1 hour each) – For audiences of up to 125 people. Choose two of the following topics for each assembly.
    • Fizzing and Foaming: Colorful Chemistry
    • Shocking Electricity (requires ability to darken the room)
    • Super Cold: Liquid Nitrogen and the States of Matter
    • The Science of Sound
    • Under Pressure: Air Pressure
