"We have been using XplorStem's Activity Books. The kids were actually engaged in the materials as much as the actual experiments. It made them feel like real scientists that were researching, developing and logging their activities. We as parents were really impressed with how easy everything was to set up and go over with the kids and that the educational standards were included."

"I could not believe it when I saw my kids using the Scientific Method  for fun! They designed their own experiments after they finished the XplorStem ebook and even graphed the results!"

Our team is composed of career scientists with over 30 years of experience in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry who have always had a passion for education. Working with educators at all levels, we have put together programs that teach students the scientific basics as they learn through the scientific method. The result is a real-world experience that they can apply to their everyday lives. Historic experiments are recreated to give students the opportunity to understand how scientific discoveries are made. This removes some of the mystery of scientific jargon and gives them the chance to experience making a new discovery themselves.
