The Explore Jr. program is on a two-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 September 2022 – May 2023 season of Explore Jr. will be covering Year 1 topics. For students in 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.
