The Edgerton Explorit Center was founded in 1995 to instill and nurture in all people the joy of scientific discovery and exploration through hands-on learning experiences following the legacy of Dr. Harold "Doc" Edgerton, MIT professor and inventor. The Edgerton Explorit Center inspires kids age 2 to 92 through exciting activities and state-of-the-art programming.
In the past few years, with the support of our members and benefactors, the EEC has launched Edgerton on the Move to bring science on the road to elementary aged students of Nebraska. This program offers a variety of dynamic Outreach Programs in addition the Center, Exhibits, Camps, Tours, Activities and Special Events bringing science to students across Nebraska and national recognition to the EEC and its tremendous staff of science educators for creative programming.
