The Explore Days program is on a four-year rotating schedule. Each season of Explore Days 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 Days sell out and this allows for multiple opportunities for students to attend the programs. The September 2023 – May 2024 season of Explore will be covering Year 2 topics.

You can find answers to common questions on the Explore Days FAQ page.

Other Options

For those unable to attend during the regular season, check out Explore Summer Camps.

Students ages five to ten can enjoy a special Explore Jr. program on a variety of topics.
