This website is published by the Galaxy Explorer (GE) Media Team at Chabot Space & Science Center in hopes to engage visitors and volunteers in current science discussions as well as provide information about the events and projects involving the Galaxy Explorers.
The GE program provides high school volunteers a way to engage in science by presenting hands-on experiments and activities to enhance the visitor experience. The activities, ranging from determining the pH of dry ice to understanding constellations to creating a spectroscope allow visitors of all ages to learn something new. GEs also contribute to special events at Chabot, such as the Balloon Drop on New Year’s Eve.
In addition to ensuring the visitor experience is the best possible, GEs also join enrichment teams to further their science-related interests. Current teams include Programming Team, Astronomy Team, Environment Team, Chemistry Team, Cadet Team, Creative Design Team, Rocketry Team, and Media Team.
