"During the COVID
lock-downs, I was shocked that the first subject to go was science! XplorStem is an important resource for parents who understand the importance of a science education.

The impact on our children
Understanding science leads to support of solutions to problems that impact our very existence.
Lack of science innovation impacts long-term health.
STEM jobs pay nearly 2X non-STEM jobs
Science education teaches critical thinking skills and leads to clearer, more persuasive communications in all professions.
"One of the
challenges we see
is that children are losing interest in science at a very young age! I'm so happy XplorStem is providing this resource for our youth.

Science education used to be about textbooks and memorization without real-world context.
Now it's about hands-on activities without
"We love that the kids
were engaged in the materials as much as the experiments. It made them feel like real scientists that were researching, developing and logging their activities."

XplorStem teaches the
from an early age just like the ABCs, spelling, addition and subtraction.
Children have an incredible capacity to learn language.
Why not teach them the language of science?
If kids can say "Tyrannosaurus Rex,"
then why can't they
And what do they
learn about atoms?
That everything they see
(and can't see) is made of atoms!
"My co-op was really
impressed with how easy everything was to set up and go over with the kids and that the educational standards were included."
is the missing piece in today's education!
Students apply the Language of Science just like real scientists while covering NGSS standards.
"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 book and even graphed the results!"
With EdTech spending exploding especially after the pandemic, why books?
Survey's of GenZ students show no preference for educational apps over "boring" traditional text books
Books are portable and can be used anywhere
Books are equitable: 4.4 million households with students still lack consistent access to a computer and 3.7 million lack internet access
