About The Exploratory



At The Exploratory, we believe that creative learning is innately born in every human being and that a sustainable future depends upon our children being confidently  armed  with the tools to harness imagination to create innovative solutions.  

Our MISSION is to provide children opportunities to sustain the love of discovery, celebrate the rigors of inquisitive, joyful learning and become students of innovation, prepared to solve future global challenges.

The Exploratory consists of many endeavors to immerse children  in the joys of inquiry and play based learning experiences through Tinkering and Making. Through our non-profit organization, we bring Making and Tinkering to schools and community events with our MakeMobile, raise funds to install maker spaces for young children in preschools, elementary schools, churches and youth centers in underprivileged areas of Greater Los Angeles.

We believe that Making and Tinkering is the just the beginning of engaging students in STEAM subjects. We are educators with experience in integrated Inquiry and Project -based learning who support teachers by bringing our Making and Tinkering expertise to their curriculum. 

Our programs incorporate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) subjects into inquiry-based experiences to build the skills children need to become innovative thinkers.

We empower children to use their natural curiosity, take risks, make mistakes, dive into exploration and soar into adventure. The Exploratory prepares children for an unknown future where innovation, communication, creation and flexible thinking skills  are said to be key to success
