South Florida’s most hands-on and entertaining museum is hitting the road. For years, students on field trips and adults looking for fun have made a trek to the heart of Fort Lauderdale and spent a day at the Museum of Discovery & Science (MODS). Now, the Museum is going mobile and going to the community.
They’re rolling out STEMobile, a museum on wheels, bringing a fun spin on education to schools. These STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) lessons pull kids out of the classroom and into the world for some fun. From learning to fly to learning to code, communing with nature to a robot petting zoo, people learn about the world around them in a way they’ll never forget.
The kids don’t have all the fun. The STEMobile can be booked by the young at heart. MODS will roll out to corporate parties/team building, hotels, or private events like birthday parties. They provide tents, tables, and all the hands-on materials, and can set up inside or outside.
