MOSI shares experiments for children to do during summer

As we get ready for Summer Splash this Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm at MOSI, it is time to start thinking about summer camps. Joining me now is Tampa Bay Parenting Contributor Grayson Kamm from MOSI, along with Lady TNT. She’s one of the STEAMpunk’s at MOSI, and she has promised me — they will not blow up our studio.

Let’s start with a chemical reaction that kids can make happen in some of our summer science camps. We have camps for every different kind of interest!

This would be something from one of our “science” camps, but we have camps that focus on every aspect of STEM or STEAM learning: science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.

And that term, STEAM, is why we have STEAMpunks like Lady TNT all over MOSI. They’re doing random acts of science for you. Our camps are led by trained educators. Their costumes look more like mine — and to me, they are your guides to the “Wow!” — they show you all the cool things you can do with science.


“How to be a Mad Scientist” is actually the name of one of MOSI’s weeklong camps. There’s also “Don’t Try this at Home,” “Chocolate Factory Fun,” and more than 130 others! The whole catalog is online right now at

Rockets, robots, costume design, video game design, exploring the outdoors… this summer, we have all of that going on at MOSI in our Summer Science Camps.

MOSI’s camps go from 9 to 4 each day, and we offer extended care from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. We have camps from preschool to high school — my four-year-old is gonna go make some inventions, high schoolers can come explore STEAM careers. MOSI’s Summer Science Camps run from June 13 to August 12. We have discounts for multiple weeks and if you become a MOSI member. And you can see the whole list and sign up at

You can also find more information about summer camps on Saturday from 9-3 at the Summer Splash Summer Camp Fair at MOSI.
