BIOLOGY WORKSHOPS

Owl Pellet Dissection Grades K - 5
Ever wondered what happens after an owl enjoys a tasty meal? Learn about this silent hunter and the critters they call dinner by piecing together the bones, feathers, and fur that you find when you dig into owl pellets with us!

Cow Eyeball Dissection Grades 3 - 12
Why do cow eyes glow at night? How similar are their eyes to ours? Explore these questions and more while dissecting a real eyeball! Through this ooey-gooey workshop learn how each piece of the eye works together to give us sight.

DNA Grades K - 12 
Special requirements: Access to sink for disposal. Life is connected by an alphabet of A’s, T’s, C’s, and G’s. Explore the delicate double helix of the DNA molecule by making models with yummy gummies and removing the physical strands of DNA from fruits and vegetables. We all have genes, they just aren’t made of denim! 

EARTH & SPACE WORKSHOPS

Soil Science Grades K - 12
How does soil help plants grow? How can we keep it healthy? In this workshop, younger students will learn what soil is and be introduced to concepts like biodegradability while older students will explore nutrients, pH, and the critters that live in soil. All students will learn how to compost at home and how it works! *Teachers, interested in setting up a classroom vermicompost system? We can help!

CHEMISTRY WORKSHOPS

pH lab Grades 3 - 12
Special requirements: Access to sink for disposal
In this lab, students will learn the pH properties of acids and bases, test various household materials, and create a vibrant rainbow display of the full pH spectrum! By the end, you’ll even discover if your breath has color -changing powers.

PHYSICS WORKSHOPS

Hovercrafts Grades 3 - 12
Special requirements: electrical outlets. Using common materials and some student ingenuity, engineer a hovercraft to glide across a table on a near frictionless cushion of air!

Bridges Grades 3 - 12
Do you have a crevasse to cross? A trench to traverse? Using design and your own creativity, you’ll build different types of bridges while learning the principles of engineering!

Jets on a String Grades 3 - 12
Special requirements: open, unobstructed spaces. Are you looking for a hands-on experience for promising rocket scientists? Use the same principles of physics as rockets to power a slightly less combustible projectile. Your students will problem solve on the fly!


  • Scheduling: Field trips can be scheduled Tuesday through Sunday during two time slots: 10am - 12pm and 1pm - 3pm. Trips must be scheduled in advance and are booked on a space-available basis. For workshop add-ons please schedule at least 3 weeks in advance.

Science Shows

Do you have a big group interested in science? Check out the Mobius Science Shows! Our Outreach Team loves getting people excited with themed shows, covering areas like chemistry, physics, and even combustion! The team will wow your group with thrilling educational experiments, while explaining the scientific principles behind each demonstration.


   To schedule a science show email jmilliron@mobiusspokane.org


Our Science Shows offer multiple options for you to choose from:

Air: What is air pressure? How much does air weigh? Why is air so important to so many things in our everyday life? Explore the answers to these questions in an exciting, fast-paced set of demonstrations that range from levitation to explosions. Air is what it's all about!

Chemistry: Atoms and molecules and compounds, oh my! Learn the five most common signs of a chemical reaction through a series of outrageous experiments. Potions fizz and beakers bubble as you explore the world of molecular interactions!

Superhero Science: Scientists assemble! Marvel at superhero feats accomplished with the power of science! We'll gain Captain America's strength through physics, recreate Hulk's massive size with chemistry, transform into the Human Torch, and so much more! Learn superhero-sized science with this fantastic demo.


  • Audience: All ages and grades, not just for kids! Ask for information about company events.
  • Group size: Recommended for groups up to 200.
