Help Us Change the Way the World Learns
What you see on the museum floor is only a third of the work we do to further science education. A philanthropic grant can help the Exploratorium continue conducting our educational programs, which often reach underserved communities in the Bay Area and beyond; and provide inspiring, engaging science training.
· Our Community Educational Engagement Program partners with more than 30 organizations around the world to bring free science education to schools, community centers, children’s hospitals, and after-school programs in diverse communities.
· Our High School Explainer Program gives high school students a chance to develop career skills and explore their passion for science. Through this innovative education, employment, and mentoring program, the Exploratorium is one of the largest private employers of Bay Area teenagers.
· Our Field Trip Program provides free access to more than 100,000 students and teachers who visit us from Title I schools each year. California public school teachers also receive free admission to the museum, thanks to the generous support of our corporate partner, Genentech.
· For more than 25 years, our Teacher Institute has provided trainings for thousands of science and math teachers to learn new and innovative inquiry-based, hands-on learning approaches in the classroom. Through their online resources alone, the Teacher Institute has provided free classroom tools to more than a million educators around the world.
