Explore It! is a series of exploratory science experiences for out-of-school programs and elementary school students (ages 8-12), funded by the National Science Foundation and developed by Education Development Center, Inc. Explore It! includes a guide for each project and a special guide for implementing the program. These extended explorations provide an experiential foundation for science concepts associated with basic phenomena and helps develops essential skills for inquiry in the formal context.
