Wonderopolis® introduces new Explorer Program

Wonderopolis®, a digital property of the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) that has welcomed more than 70 million visitors over the past decade, is taking hands-on learning to a new level with the launch of its Explorer Program.

Since Wonderopolis’ debut in 2010, it has created more than 2,700 freely accessible Wonders of the Day®, transforming natural curiosity and imagination into exploration and discovery for learners of all ages. With this latest development, Wonderopolis’ daily intriguing questions will move beyond the screen and into a variety of programs all across the country.

The new Wonderopolis Explorer Program brings the wonder of learning to your fingertips, consisting of easy-to-use printable materials along with hands-on Maker activities to reinforce learning.

Each daily session will include an opening activity, one of the most popular Wonders of the Day, a post-reading activity, a Maker project, and a wrap-up activity or discussion. Each session will spark children’s learning for approximately 2-3 hours each day and include multidisciplinary content that purposefully aligns with educational standards, the STEM Educational Quality Framework, and Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy, making it compatible with K-12 curriculums across the country.

This new offering from Wonderopolis is ideal for on-site programming such as summer camps, afterschool programs, recreational programs, and many types of out-of-school-time programs. Incorporating one full session into your program’s daily routine can keep children engaged and learning without knowing it. Plus, the Wonderopolis Explorer Program can be delivered by anyone—facilitators do not need an education background to lead the activities.

The Wonderopolis Explorer Program is customizable in length, depending on your program’s individual need, so you only pay for what you need. A full program can last up to 10 weeks.

Providing an exciting journey of hands-on, fun learning opportunities, Wonderopolis Explorer Program guides are available for just $74.99 each at Shopify.com. Supplemental materials provided by individual programs include low-cost basics such as markers and construction paper, keeping the learning easy and affordable.

Of course, NCFL is home to a variety of other free resources designed to help build your brain, including Camp Wonderopolis®, Cultivating Readers, the Learn to Earn Toolkit, and more.

As the world opens back up following this difficult pandemic, make up for lost learning by providing fun summer or after-school programs with memorable and enriching content. From all of us to you, happy exploring!
