Outreach STEAM Workshops

Mobius on the Move is a flexible, in-person classroom experience for students of all ages. We are proud to work with principals, general education teachers, and science specialists to create the best experience for your students. Our programs are suitable for a variety of classrooms and time frames.


Workshops are group programs designed to enhance classroom curriculum with hands-on examples of learning by doing. A wide range of workshop topics cover different subjects and grade ranges. We’re here to help inspire your class with fun science activities that spark curiosity and motivate learning.  All workshops are NGSS aligned and can be tailored to the needs of your group. 

Outreach STEAM Workshops

Mobius offers a variety of STEAM Workshops covering the topics of Biology, Earth + Space Science, Chemistry, and Technology + Engineering. Expand each topic below to see the workshops!

Workshops can typically accommodate up to three consecutive age/grade levels. If your group spans multiple grades/ages, please let us know in the inquiry form. A Mobius Educator will be happy to discuss possible options and accommodations.
