Exploration Nation is a supplemental elementary S.T.E.M. program designed to inspire kids to pursue careers in S.T.E.M. fields and sustain a life-long love of learning. The program explores science through the eyes of a kid, and shows that relentless curiosity leads to amazing adventures. Pete Monfre says, "I believe the person who ultimately cures cancer, solves the energy problem or creates the next insanely great thing is in elementary school right now".
