The mission of Earth Explorers is to cultivate big dreams and help students turn them into reality by demystifying science and technology.


Middle School Students are given a spark experience that combines mentors, scientists, classroom STEM content and video presentations of learning.


Our students in 6th, 7th and 8th grade become excited about STEM as a high school, college and career path moving forward.

STEM. Small Groups. Personal.

Students gain vital role models through working with graduate students, scientists and filmmakers.
