 ‘Tis the Season of STEAM: Check out the FUN at MOSI

The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) on Fowler Avenue continues to be a community resource for your family. Whether you visit the exhibits or attend an educational program, MOSI continues to provide a safe, engaging place for children to thrive in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM).

MOSI’s STEAM education programs guide students through inquiry and critical thinking using hands-on experiences. By integrating STEAM, we encourage kids to use their natural curiosity to explore, discover and innovate. In all of MOSI’s programs, students work collaboratively and creatively to discover new passions and build on existing skills while surrounded by other creative and motivated children.

Winter Break Camps

Winter break means no school! Keep your child’s mind engaged while having fun at one of MOSI’s four fun-filled, interactive Winter Break Camps this December. All of MOSI’s programs incorporate safety protocols following the CDC guidelines.

Dreaming of a STEAM–Christmas! (Dec. 21-23; K-3) Bring in holiday cheer using STEAM by using chemistry to break down candy canes or create Rudolph flashlights and Christmas-colored bouncy balls and candy glass. This is going to be a fun and festive time with STEAM!

Ready? Set, Mod! (Dec. 21-23; Grades 4-8) Get ready to build your own mods for everyone’s favorite blocky game. Learn how to modify Minecraft and make it your own by adding blocks, items, mobs and more. This is Minecraft, but with YOUR personal touch!

Cool Chemistry (Dec. 28-30; K-3) Nothing is cooler than chemistry! From bouncy balls to home grown crystal snowflakes, we cover it all. Learn about the states of matter and the difference between endo- and exothermic reactions. Make your own ice cream and chill out in this cool camp.

Robotics 101 (Dec. 28-30; Grades 4-8) Get ready for an exciting camp where you’ll build, program and test robots using the LEGO EV3 system. Work together to overcome the daily challenge and make it through our obstacle course. Finish the week with an epic showdown in the Robot Battle Arena!

Need a couple of hours to take a break or get ready for the holiday season? Check out Minecraft Mania each Saturday where your child can learn new tricks while exploring Minecraft with a MOSI educator.

Tired of giving the same old gifts? This season, give the gift of an experience where memories are made. A gift of a MOSI membership lasts all year long and helps to support a local non-profit. Have a child who has everything? Give the gift of camp for a week or Minecraft Mania on a Saturday! For more information about MOSI, visit
