The Explo Learning Festival

Explo invites students to spend an afternoon exploring, creating, and discovering at the Explo Learning Festival.


Featuring 20 interactive booths — and several awe-inducing experiments on the main stage — the 2015 Explo Learning Festival was a resounding success (and an incredible amount of fun).

2015 Educational Partners

Here are some of our partners for the 2015 Explo Learning Festival:


As a mission-driven, non-profit organization, Explo regularly engages in community outreach — from inviting students to participate in discussions on the Presidential Debates, to exhibiting projects at local STEM fairs, to working with organizations such as the Sunflower County Freedom Project to rethink the ways they engage their students.

One of our regular community outreach projects is our annual Explo Learning Festival, where we invite students to join us for an afternoon of hands-on, experiential learning — and fun!

Bigger, Better + Way More Awesome
Building on the success of last year’s Festival, we’ve decided the only way to go was BIG. This year, we’re expanding the Festival in every way imaginable, with four times the space, triple the amount of parking, and twice as many booths, as well as an incredible group of new, exhibiting partners (see sidebar).

With 20 booths (twice as many as last year!) to choose from, you’ll love every moment of your afternoon of discovery. Here are just a few highlights of what to expect:

  • Light up a life-sized light bright
  • Ride a hovercraft
  • Construct your own Lego jewelry
  • Build towers with triangles
  • Paint with light
  • Beat the Laser Maze
  • Make microscopic drawings
  • Make magic with science
  • And More!

"I’m really excited about the The Explo Learning Festival at Wheaton College," Moira says. "We’re designing it as a celebration of curiosity. We’ve got loads of fun hands-on activities planned that we know will get kids excited. Explo is about experiencing the joy of learning and that's what we're aiming for with the Festival."

The Explo Learning Festival is the perfect venue for family fun and experiential learning on a spring Sunday afternoon. This is going to be an afternoon to remember — we hope you'll join us!

About Explo on the Campus of Wheaton College

Located on the campus of Wheaton College, we welcome students entering grades 2-7 to choose from any of our four summer programs (depending on their age): Explo at Wheaton, our three-week flagship Explo 360 Program; Explo ER and Explo Vet, our immersive two-week Focus Programs; and Explo Mini, our weeklong concentrations. In each of our four programs, students have the opportunity to expand their worldview, discover the magic of creative learning, and make friends for life.

One of the most beautiful residential campuses in New England (Norman Rockwell would approve), Wheaton College is also one of the region’s friendliest. Nestled between Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, Wheaton College is surrounded by lush forests and nature trails. With air-conditioned classrooms, light-filled art studios, two theaters (one full stage, one black box), a woodshop, a LEED Gold-Certified science building — with state-of-the-art science and robotics labs, four rooftop greenhouses, a weather station, and telescopes that bridge the gap between Earth and the stars — Wheaton College is the perfect setting for our students to experience the magic of an Explo summer.
