Homeschool Science Experience Enrichment Days (SEED)

What does it take to make a seed grow? The seed needs water, nutrients and light to grow. Let MOSI help your child grow with our new Homeschool SEED days!

SEED Days are monthly enrichment classes for your homeschooler that complement your homeschool curriculum through hands-on explorations of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics).

September 14th: Innovation & Design Station

How does something go from a simple sketch to a fully realized real-world design? What does it take to bring a new product from an idea to life? Learn the basics of prototyping as we create a virtual object that we can then send to one of our in-house 3D printers for production!*

*Please note: model size restrictions apply. These will be printed throughout the week after the lesson and will not be available on the day of the class
