"Being a child at EXPLO taught me how to look at problems creatively. Not just the traditional way, but from the top, the bottom, the front, the back, the inside, the outside, from above and from below until I found a way to solve it that never occurred to me before. That's the EXPLO way."
Dr. Chantrice S., EXPLO Alum
"The students who make the conscious decision to attend EXPLO are the type of people who will invent the next Facebook, put humans on Mars, or become the leader of their country. Not only are these people intellectually curious and motivated, they have the interpersonal skills to work with each other to accomplish most anything."
Malik D., Student, EXPLO 360 at Yale
"At EXPLO I found a part of myself that I didn't know existed: I became a more confident person, a more independent person, a more cultured person, a more open-minded person, and most of all a more defined person."
