The Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) has engineered a weekly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum aligned with Florida’s new Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (BEST) standards for students of all grade levels. The MODS Challenge invites students, teachers and parents in PreK through grade 12 to solve real-world problems through STEM and project-based learning. 

During a time when distance learning is at the forefront, this curriculum bolsters 21st century skills, including creativity, critical thinking, design, teamwork, leadership, risk-taking and perseverance. Additionally, each week’s challenge offers selected readings for every grade level and access to some of the IMAX® films in MODS’ library of documentaries. The challenges strive to empower students to become STEAM learners and passionate problem-solvers for life.

ATTENTION MODS MEMBERS & GUESTS

Thank you for your interest in MODS! The Museum’s daily visiting hours are temporarily suspended. We are now offering virtual and offsite programming, which allows us to continue connecting people around the globe to inspiring science - whether at home or in virtual classrooms. We look forward to reopening our doors when case numbers are down, visitor and staff safety can be ensured, and when a viable vaccine becomes available, shoring up public health. Please take advantage of our online experiences.

For Museum updates and innovative virtual experiences, please continue to check our website and sign up for our newsletter to see the coolest content first! Hang with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube to learn something exciting and fun each and every day from home!

Thank you for your understanding, trust and support during these exceptional times.
