“Hey EXPLO, Would You Start a School?”

We’ve been asked that thousands of times. We thought about it, but decided we could impact many more students and teachers by launching EXPLO Ed.

At our Exploration Center headquarters — outfitted with a makerspace, woodshop, electronics/robotics lab, and multimedia production spaces — as well as at our summer programs on the campuses of Wheaton, Wellesley, and Yale, the EXPLO Ed team is constantly innovating teaching methods and curriculum. Our goal? To help educators cultivate classrooms committed to inquiry, creativity, and exploration so that learning is more engaging and joyful.

EXPLO Ed works with educators, schools and educational organizations around the world to address issues of student engagement, summer learning loss, STEAM and critical making curricula, and professional development. EXPLO is an education game changer. You can be, too.

The Three Pillars of EXPLO Ed


Curriculum that connects thought to action and action to feeling for teacher and student alike.


Inspiring the desire to ask why and to investigate the world from different perspectives.


Understanding that learning is a life long adventure of simple questions, discovery and wonder.
