Science Explorers: Experience the Wonders of Science!
Experience the Wonders of Science!
if it’s not fun, we’re not doing it™
IF YOU’VE NEVER INVESTIGATED an insect-eating plant, re-created one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s inventions or made glowing slime, have you really lived?
If your child has never referred to science as “cool” or “awesome,” gone bananas over botany, or had a blast with the fundamentals of physics, it’s time to find out about Science Explorers.
Science Explorers’ Mission…
… is to make science fun! The goal is to demystify, inspire and explore the wonderful world of science with hands-on, inquiry based lessons aligned with the National Science Education Standards. Science Explorers works together with families, communities and the citizens of tomorrow to put wonder back into the world of science.
Where Does it Happen?

Who Are These Intrepid Explorers and What Do They Do?
Science Explorers was founded in 1999 by Jennifer “Jupiter Jen” Moorehead, a Lancaster County-based science “edu-t ainment” presenter. The nnovative, hands-on science company was created and is dedicated to providing an opportunity for children ages 4-11 to become engaged in the excitement of science. At after- school programs, science summer camp, school assemblies, or Scout events, Science Explorers makes science exciting.
Did you ever dissect a shark? What about a squid? Have you ever mixed together two liquids to create a solid? Examined a real heart? Built and launched your own rocket? Lifted a person using nothing but air? These are some of the awesome experiments and interactive, hands-on projects that make its programs so popular.

Science Explorers has the perfect gift idea for that special young person in your life—a summer day camp experience that is fun-filled, excitement-packed and geared towards science. Science Explorers Summer Camp offers the thrill of a lifetime. While kids are feeding their minds, they’re having a ball. As “Jupiter Jen” says, “If it’s not fun, we’re not doing it!”
Register your child at a week-long Science Explorers summer day camp! Science Explorers offer camps at elementary schools, colleges and universities, museums, libraries, botanical gardens, and parks and recreation departments.
“My children have attended Science Explorers camps for three years, and every single time they come home laughing, telling exciting stories, and looking forward to the next day. From the time they dissected a shark to the fun (and safe) chemistry experiments they brought home to share with me, I have been amazed at the variety of great activities the Science Explorers folks come up with. My daughter even wanted to attend Take-A-Dive camp a second time last summer! It’s my kids favorite part of every summer.”— Claudia L ewis, A Happy Parent
“This is the best camp of my life AND the best camp on the planet! AND I want to have a super absorbing polymer as a pet!”— Habitat Henry, Happy Camper
