The Explore Jr. program is a fun-filled morning of exploratory learning from a biblical worldview. This program is created for students in grades K–5 (ages five and up). Each program is designed to introduce children to a variety of topics through hands-on learning, visual presentations, and engaging speakers.
The Explore Jr. program is on a 2-year rotating schedule. Each season of Explore Jr. operates between the months of September and May. During a season, the science programs provided in the fall will be identical to the programs offered in the spring. Many Explore Jr. programs sell out and this allows for multiple opportunities for families to attend the programs. The Explore Jr. September 2020 – May 2021 season will cover Year 1 topics. For students in grades 6–12 (ages 11 and up), check out the Explore Days page for more information. Please refer to the individual Explore Jr. topics for more information and to register. You can find answers to common questions on the Explore Jr. FAQ page.
