The Young Explorers Clubs’ project was formed in 2002 by Janusz Laski and the Kłodzkie Educational Society. It was addressed to students and teachers of secondary schools who, during extracurricular activities performed experiments and scientific experimentation broadening their knowledge of nature. An interactive method of working with young people was to instill among them the fashion for experimentation, awaken curiosity, and inspire independent learning.
The project was implemented in 2002-2005 by Kłodzkie Educational Society under the "Equal Opportunities" Polish-American Freedom Foundation and the Foundation for Children and Youth. The result, dozens of Young Explorers Clubs emerged throughout the whole Poland. After 2005, the Kłodzkie Educational Society, due at the end of a financial grant, limited the scope of work associated with this project.
After several years of absence, in 2009 the Copernicus Science Centre took on the position of the coordinator of the Young Explorers Clubs.
Since May 2012 the Young Explorers Clubs’ program is financially supported by the Polish - American Freedom Foundation. We have signed a Partnership Agreement.
