Explore! for Informal Science Educators

Explore! is designed to engage children in space and planetary science in the library and informal learning environments.

The Explore! website provides hands-on activities and supporting resources such as presentations, recommended books, and online resources for librarians and other informal educators. These products can be used to engage children of all ages in the wonders of our solar system, staying healthy in space, and more. The materials are free for educational use and designed specifically for the library setting and informal educational venues. The hands-on activities are designed to be easy to do and vary in length from 30 minutes to two hours, topics are flexible, and families are invited to share and learn together. Explore! also provides opportunities for partnering libraries with volunteer groups, local businesses, community programs, and schools.
