 Interactive Classroom Programs

Take the field trip you always wanted without ever leaving school grounds!

 

Your students will be immersed in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) as they engage in innovative, exciting hands-on science experiments, demonstrations and simulations with a MOSI educator! Extended-learning opportunities in geology, chemistry, biology, robotics, and physics meeting NGSSS for students K-12. 

Created to meet the needs of schools with limited resources, scheduling and transportation concerns, MOSI outreach programs allow your students to participate in a MOSI “fieldtrip” with minimal impact to your school schedule.

MOSI outreach programs and teams are available for booking today throughout Florida on a first-come, first-served, basis. So forget about permission slips, ordering buses, approvals and your students missing out on other subject-areas.  Let us bring the MOSI experience to you!

MOSI Interactive Classroom Program Descriptions

Breaking It Down (Grades K-12)

 

Have you ever wondered how the body receives energy from the food that you eat? Follow your food’s fantastic voyage through the digestive process and discover just how important that peanut butter and jelly sandwich really is! From the enzymes in saliva to the powerful acid found in the stomach, learn how the body breaks down food and obtains nutrients though hands-on experimentation and simulation. Young learners will have fun getting their hands dirty as they mix, churn, and absorb different materials just as the body would.

 

 

Dissection Detectives (Grades K-12)

Become a Dissection Detective and help our MOSI Senior Detective solve a crime! Through examination, dissection, games, and digital research, Dissection Detectives will solve mysteries involving plants and animals. Using the information they gather in the mobile lab and the clues left behind at the scene of the crime, the Dissection Detectives will work in teams to gather evidence, gain hands-on experience with the anatomy and cell structure of plants and animals, and identify the guilty culprit in one of four different mysteries.

 

Potions in Motion (Grades K-12)

Take matters into your own hands and explore the world around you through chemistry! Mix, smash, and stiringredients to create dazzling, fizzing, bubbling and colorful reactions. Use science tools to measure and analyze your experiments with density; states of matter; acids, bases, and salts; oxidation-reductions; and more! Grab your safety goggles and let your inner mad scientist free!

 

Robot Round-Up (Grades 3-12)

Feel the thrill of victory as robots perform amazing feats in this exploration of robotics and engineering! Investigate the forces behind machines to construct robotic systems, and program robots to solve team-based challenges such as playing robot sports or collecting samples for study. Experience science with new ideas in future technologies. 

 

Rocket Racers (Grades K-12)

Engage in the race to space while defying gravity by launching rockets into the atmosphere. Experiment with different forces to understand how they change a rocket’s velocity and trajectory. Then design a rocket into a unique shape in order to change its motion. The countdown has begun, so prepare for liftoff!  

 Rocky Road (Grades K-12)

Ease on down the Rocky Road and get your hands dirty studying fossils, rocks, and land formations! Investigate soil characteristics and minerals while learning about their importance to society, especially Florida. Examine how the sun affects the earth by engaging in activities designed to study cycles of the earth, such as: erosion, chemical and physical weathering, landforms, and layers of the earth. Dig deep into geology and discover how much our earth rocks!
