SMO Lower Elementary (Pre-K-3rd Grade) Programs
Classroom activities are optimized for groups of 20-30.
Each session runs 45 minutes to an hour. Content can be adjusted for grade level.
AIR PLAY (Pre-K to 1st grade)
Based off of “The Tiny Seed” by Eric Carle, this program is an exploration of how air can carry different things. Little scientists will conduct tests, record results, and use their new knowledge as they build their own air-powered creations.
PINT-SIZE CHEMISTS (Grades Pre-K to 2nd grade)
Who says chemistry is just for big kids? In this hands-on lab activity, budding chemists are encouraged to experiment with a multitude of mixtures, fizzing formulas, and surprising solutions.
SMALL SCALE ENGINEERS (Pre-K to 3rd grade)

Reptiles, amphibians, insects — oh my! Want to get up close and personal with some of our creepy-crawly pals? Then this program is just for you! Learn all about some of our legless, scaled or even prickly co-workers and get the chance to get hands-on with them.
SCIENCE STUDIO (Grades 1-3)
Wanted: Artistically minded scientists AND scientifically-minded artists. Don’t think science and art belong together? Let us show you why they do!
