Dissection - Owl Pellet
Grades: K-2, 3-8 | 60 min.

Ever wondered what happens after an owl enjoys a tasty meal? Think you can figure out what was on the menu? Grab your tools and dig into owl pellets with us! Learn about this silent hunter and the critters they call dinner by piecing together the bones, feathers, and fur that you discover!

Dissection - Cow Eyeball
Grades: 3-8, 9-12 | 60 min.
Special requirements: Access to sink for disposal and cleaning.

Why do cow eyes glow at night? Do they have different eye colors? Learn the answers to these questions and discover similarities between their eyes and ours, while dissecting a real eyeball! Through this ooey-gooey workshop, you will learn each piece of the eye and see how they all work together to give us sight.

Dissection - Squid
Grades: 3-8, 9-12 | 60 min.
Special requirements: Access to sink for disposal and cleaning.

Dissecting a squid can be in inky business. Discover how these marine creatures navigate the oceans and what makes them different from those of us that live above the waves. One of the best parts? Paint with the squid ink when you’re done with the dissection!

Dissection - Frog
Grades: 3-8, 9-12 | 60 min.
Special requirements: Access to sink for disposal and cleaning.

Our frog dissection workshop is perfect for budding biologists! Open one up and investigate their digestive system, muscles for hopping, and skeletal structure. As fellow vertebrates, frogs share many similarities with humans. This is an excellent introduction to anatomy.

Grades: 3-8, 9-12 | 90 min.
Special requirements: Electrical outlets.

Using common materials and some student ingenuity, engineer a hovercraft to glide across a tabletop on a near frictionless cushion of air.

Grades: 3-8 | 90 min.
Special requirements: Tables with enough space for designing and building.

Do you have a crevasse to cross? A trench to traverse? Use design, engineering, and your creative imagination to build a bridge with unconventional materials. No idea is too wacky!

Jets On a String
Grades: 3-8, 9-12 | 90 min.
Special requirements: Must be held in gym or similar large space for safety reasons.

Are you looking for a hands-on experience for some promising rocket scientists? Use the same principles of physics that power rockets to power a slightly less combustible projectile. Your students will problem-solve on the fly!

Grades: 3-8 | 60-90 min.
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 from yummy gummies and remove the physical strands of DNA from fruits and vegetables to examine the blueprints of life. We all have genes, they just aren’t made of denim!

Grades: K-2, 3-8 | 50 min.

Construct a working model of a lung out of materials that can be found around your house or classroom! Observe how different parts of our body work together in order to keep us functioning.

Do you have a big group interested in science? Check out the Mobius Science Shows! Our Education 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.

If you’re looking for more involvement, don’t miss the hands-on workshops that tie-in with each show!

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!

Combustion: Fire needs three things to exist. Do you know what they are? This heated discussion touches on the hot topic of combustion science. Handheld flames and rapid expansions of gases will delight inquisitive minds of all ages.

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.
