TAMPA, Fla. — The Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa is getting into the delivery business.
To reach more people during the pandemic, "MOSI-in-a-Box" is a rentable crate packed with hands-on science fun and activities that can be shipped to homes, classrooms and libraries.
"MOSI-in-a-Box" themes range from space to animals to plants.
For example, with the interstellar box kids can learn how a star forms using a hair-dryer and flying Styrofoam and fling marbles to illustrate gravitational pull.
The boxes come with instructions and how-to videos.
MOSI will rent the boxes for $150 per week. Up to 150 students can participate.
The museum will also be hosting an e-learning hub in their computer labs, a safe place for students during the school year.
Parents can drop students off and educators will be on hand to offer assistance. For more information, click here.
