NGSS: SC.(K-5).E.5: Earth in Space & Time 

Physics is everywhere, even in our favorite attractions! Students will do experiments to learn the laws of motion, then put those concepts to the test by designing their very own roller coasters in the classroom! 

NGSS: SC.(4-6).P.12-13.1 Force & Motion 

Make a SPLASH with a MOSH Educator as you dive down into the deep blue sea to learn all about the ocean and the animals that call it home. Make an ocean in a bottle to take home! (needs access to water) 

Do you see that? Smell this! What does it taste like? How does that feel? I hear it! Explore your own 5 SUPER senses alongside a MOSH Educator and learn how they help us to understand the world around us! Make slime to take home!
