Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire the next generation of innovators, engineers, and creative problem solvers, by providing relevant, engaging, affirming, and liberating opportunities for students of the underrepresented communities.

What We Do

Our programs and project-based learning challenges engage kids in science, technology, and engineering and make learning memorable and fun.

Dreams need doing, and exploring STE(A)M gives a child the power to make stuff, break stuff, and make it better! We need the imagination and skill of engineers to solve the problems and address the challenges of our modern world. Engineering fuels collaboration, persistence, and problem-solving, critical skills for every child from every walk of life. Exploration Academy welcomes you to explore STE(A)M and stretch your imagination.
