PHYSICAL SCIENCE

One program can seat up to 99 people; larger groups will be split into two programs.

Science Methods (K – 5th grade)
Students become scientists as they experiment in MOSH’s extreme science laboratory! They will learn the nature of the scientific world as they make observations, test hypotheses and analyze data. Students will learn that the processes of science can be fun in this exciting interactive program.

[ NGSS: SC.(K5).N.1. The Practice of Science ]


What’s the Matter? (2nd – 5th grade)
From solids to liquids to gases – students see matter change before their very eyes. Your students will become involved in proving that gas is full of mass, and they will experience the chill of cold liquid nitrogen as it boils at room temperature.

[ NGSS: SC.(25). P.8. Properties of Matter ]


Energize Me (3rd – 5th grade)
What do breakfast, a bicycle and a light bulb all have in common? Students find out in this program that takes an indepth look at various forms of energy and how energy is transformed.

[ NGSS: SC.(35).P.10. Forms of Energy ]


Wild Weather (5th – 6th grade)
Science will take your students by storm as we create clouds and experience lightning in the lab. Students will find out what makes a tornado spin, what causes thunder and how hurricanes are formed as they learn about how temperature influences weather.

[ NGSS: SC.(56).E.7. Earth Systems and Patterns ]


Volts and Jolts (5th – 6th grade)
What is electricity? Where does it come from and how does it work? Students have a shocking experience as they explore the electricity that runs their TV, creates lightning in the sky and causes light bulbs to light up in midair.

[ NGSS: SC.(35).P.10. Forms of Energy ]

[ NGSS: SC.6.P.13. Forces and Changes in Motion ]


How Slow Can You Go (3rd – 5th grade)

Carry out a lesson in 3D maze-making. Groups will have to invent unique paths and obstacles to meet the goal of maximizing the time it takes a ball to run through their maze without stopping and without handling the ball once it is dropped into their maze. In other words, it’s all up to their invention. Groups will have several rounds to improve their contraption, each time being able to see and borrow from the successes of other groups. It’s a lesson in both competition and sharing. Time trials after each iteration will generate data to analyze, allowing students the ability to compare their improvement as an individual group and as a class overall.

[ NGSS: SC.(K5).N.1. ]


APPLIED SCIENCE

Construction Instruction (K-3rd grade)

Using everyday materials, like drinking straws and spaghetti, students will discover the mathematical world of two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometric shapes. As a group, they will apply their newfound knowledge as they construct towers, bridges, and put their engineering designs to the test.

MAFS. (K-3). G.1 Geometry

SC. (K-3). N.1 The Practice of Science


natural

NATURAL SCIENCE

One program can seat up to 99 people; larger groups will be split into two programs.

Happenin’ Habitats (K – 5th grade) 
Where does a RedTailed Hawk call home? How about a Gopher Tortoise? Not only will students find out what types of habitats local wildlife species are found in, but why they live there. An animal’s relationship to its habitat is very important because it must provide them with everything it needs to survive. Meet some live animals and find out what habitats they call home.

[ NGSS: SC.(K1).L.14. Organization and Development of Living Organisms ]

[ NGSS: SC.(15).L.17. Interdependence ]


It All Makes Sense (K – 2nd grade)
Students will come to their senses in this multidisciplinary program that teaches the biology of the five senses through hands-on science experiments. They will see the color spectrum through prisms, hear sound waves in action, feel the chill of freezing cold liquid nitrogen and more!

[ NGSS: SC.(K2).L.14. Organization and Development of Living Organism ]


No Bones About It (5th – 6th grade)
Without bones, humans would be a formless pile of mushy muscle. Find out how awesome our bones are. Students learn about their form and function and see what professional scientists have learned from them.

[NGSS: SC.(56).L.14. Organization and Development of Living Organisms ]


history

HISTORY

One program can seat up to 99 people; larger groups will be split into two programs.

Flags Over Florida (4th-5th grade)
Come discover the triumphs and tragedies of settling Florida’s First Coast. From Ponce DeLeon to Statehood, students will explore how “La Floride” became the “Sunshine State” in an interactive adventure through Florida’s history.

[NGSS: SS.(4-5). A.3-4. Historical Knowledge: American History and Geography]


Source-ry: What are Primary and Secondary Sources? (K – 5th grade)

What are primary and secondary sources? In this interactive program, students will learn the difference between these two sources and how we can use them as tools for learning and understanding the past.

[ NGSS: SS.(K-5). A.1. Historical Inquiry and Analysis ]


space

PLANETARIUM

One program can seat up to 192 people total; larger groups will be split into two programs.

Skies Over Jacksonville (Grade level customizable) 
Students will join our planetarium educators in a journey across the sky as bright stars, asterisms, constellations and other surprises are identified and discussed.

[ NGSS: SC.(K5).E.5. Earth in Space and Time]


The Little Star That Could (K – 3rd grade)
The Little Star That Could follows the adventures of a character named “Little Star.” The Little Star That Could is an excellent and fun introduction to stars, the galaxy and planets of our solar system.

[ NGSS: SC.(K5). E.5. Earth in Space and Time]


Zula Patrol (PreK– 2nd grade)
While on a routine fossil hunting expedition, the Zula Patrol discovers that someone’s been dumping trash in Earth’s prehistoric past! On their mission to catch the culprit, they learn all about the formation and development of Earth and its inhabitants.

[NGSS: SC.(K5). E.5. Earth in Space and Time]


Molecularium (PreK – 3rd grade)
This magical, musical adventure into the world of molecules follows a cast of funloving characters as they move throughout the universe in a magical ship. On their journey, they pass through the three states of matter solids, liquids, and gas – at the atomic level.

[ NGSS: SC.(24).P.8. Properties of Matter]


Earth, Moon & Sun (K – 5th grade)
Follow Coyote on an adventure in space as you learn the truth behind some common misconceptions about our Earth and its relationship with the moon and sun. Coyote and his Native American stories will help demonstrate the difference between the myths and science of the sky.
