What is the Mobile Science Activity Center (MSAC)?

  • The MSAC trailers consist of two 44-foot long trailers with 10 iPad interactive workstations and one 36-foot trailer with 9 iPad interactive workstations for students to conduct activities and investigations related to agriculture and the environment.
  • All materials and supplies to conduct the activities are provided except for Ice Cream in a Bag where the school provides the milk and ice.
  • Examples of activities include: Biodegradable Corn Plastic, Ice Cream in a Bag, Gluep, and Soy Lip Balm. These activities make the connection between the agricultural source to commonly used products.

  • Target grade levels are 4th and 5th grade. However, activities are available for grades K-8.
  • The school contact must complete and return a pre-visit packet 3 weeks prior to each visit.  This packet will be provided by the MSAC Coordinator.
