More about the Exploratorium website: Explainer Perspectives
The Exploratorium Explainers are made up of two different groups, the Field Trip Explainers and the High School Explainers. The Field Trip Explainers are a group of experienced educators who love working with kids. The High School Explainers are students from the Bay Area and from around the world who come together to participate in a teaching and learning experience at the museum. Both groups work to support, inspire, and empower the Exploratorium visitors.
