Welcome to Explorer Academy, a thrilling new seven-book fiction series based on the adventures of real-life National Geographic explorers.

Inspire your unit with the story of 12-year-old Cruz Coronado and 23 kids from around the globe who train to become the next generation of great explorers. The books are filled with mystery, code breaking, cool technology, and valuable lessons about teamwork and friendship. In addition, each book provides profiles of real explorers and their work, and The Truth Behind the Fiction section that explains the innovative science featured.

Explorer Academy offers great resources for Scouts who are interested in earning their Reading, Exploration, and other merit badges. We know that book one, The Nebula Secret is already a hit with Scouts who signed up to be early reviewers:

“I loved this book! It was exciting all the way through … and I can’t wait for book two!”  
–Fitz, age 12
