MOSH offers interactive, inquiry-based learning for your student in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics!
Programs have been developed for elementary- and middle-school aged students. Separate workshops will run simultaneously for ages 5-8 and 9-13, covering the same topics through age-specific curriculum. Parents may still register children that fall outside of these age ranges, but acknowledge that MOSH workshops are designed to meet standards for these age groups.
