EXPLO Reinvented the Learning Experience.
We Continue to Do So — Every Day

From the halls of MIT to the minds of curious young people from across the U.S. and around the world, learning through exploration combines an array of experiences — from hands-on courses and workshops to outdoor activities and weekend trips — that transform the way students engage with the world. More than 40 years later, EXPLO continues to reinvent the learning experience. Educators, nonprofits, and corporate leaders alike now seek EXPLO’s knowledge and expertise in engaged learning, critical making, and design thinking to drive their organizations forward.

EXPLO is short for Exploration. Each
summer, 90% of students choose
to attend our Exploration Programs.
How to Choose Your Program

I’m so excited to get them thinking about careers they may not have thought about before — to meet with people from a lot of different industries that are incredibly innovative. This is not run-of-the-mill work. It’s super forward-thinking, creative science.
