In response to the needs of our community, OMSI is offering a new suite of virtual programs and has tailored some exsisting in-person programs to be virtual. Programs can be booked by educators, schools, group programs, families, pod leaders, and other community members looking for virtual educational programs.
Maximum of 40 participants.
How does food keep our bodies healthy? Why should we "eat a rainbow" every day? Students explore these questions with activities focused on the science of healthy foods. A "tasting lab" activity puts special emphasis on the importance of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables.
NOTE: The ‘tasting lab’ activity involves smelling and tasting a variety of fruits and vegetables. Families will need to acquire a 5 different fruits and/or vegetables before class.
OMSI supports educators with NGSS requirements by providing corresponding programming, opportunities, and resources for them and their students. To learn more about specific ways in which OMSI programs align with and support science standards reach out to the Sales team at 503-797-4661.
