MosSE’s Washington State Debut!

The spectrUM Discovery Area’s mobile science program, MosSE, kicked off its spring tour with its first ever stop outside Montana on January 23-24. At the Tri-Cities Family Expo in Pasco, Washington, children and families experienced Hands on Health, with guided heart and eye dissections, a surgery simulation station, and other hands-on activities that explore health, the body, and nutrition.

Lisa Teske, director of marketing & business development for Trios Health, said, “Hands On Health was a spectacular exhibit for the Tri-Cities Family Expo this year. The event draws thousands of local families, and I was thrilled to see them not only stop but linger in our booth to take in all of the interactive learning available. We continue to hear from local teachers and parents about it. SpectrUM sent two fantastic educators along with the seven stations and, together with our staff volunteers, we delivered a memorable health education experience for Tri-Cities families.”

spectrUM is eager to continue our spring tour, which includes stops in Hot Springs, Potomac, Anaconda, Fort Benton, Browning, Bozeman, and more!  Stay tuned!
