The Exploratorium relies on the generosity of corporate supporters to bring our education programs to young people and their teachers. A philanthropic grant from your company can help the museum reach underserved communities in the Bay Area and provide life-changing, hands-on science training through the following educational programs:
- Community Educational Engagement partners with more than 30 organizations to bring free, hands-on science to schools, community centers, children’s hospitals, and after-school programs.
- The High School Explainer Program is an innovative education, employment, and mentoring program for high school students that enables them to build their own skills while learning to help others.
- The Field Trip Program 115,000 students and their teachers who visit each year.
- The Teacher Institute has been training middle and high school science and math teachers to use hands-on, inquiry-based learning in the classroom for more than 25 years.
- The Institute for Inquiry has been serving as a professional development center for teachers, administrators, and professional developers to explore the theory and practice of inquiry-based teaching and learning for over 30 years.
The museum often works with companies to identify special programs aligned with philanthropic goals. We encourage you to contact Dana Earl, Assistant Director of Institutional Support, at (415) 528-4434 to discover the opportunities that are available.
