Can’t come to the MESS Hall? We can come to you. We offer several different programs during the school year to enhance science education off-site. During the summer, we have a different menu of programs.
Let us bring the MESS Hall to you. Book the MESS Hall for an assembly style science show in your cafeteria or auditorium. We can enhance the impact by setting up activity stations for classes to visit following the show. Science shows are 30 minutes, followed by 1 hour of hands-on stations. Fee: $250 for up to 2 classes; $75 for each additional hour of hands-on exploration.
Get Going With Gravity | Grades 1 – 3 | Take the challenge! This interactive show allows participants to balance forces while building a tall structure and encourages the use of descriptive language in math, engineering, and science.
Air Show | Grades 3 -5 | We are surrounded by air, but we rarely give it a second thought. However, air is powerful, causing motion, weather, and even influencing biology. Build things that fly and spin, and imitate nature by using the power of air for your own means.
Contact us for more information about our science shows.
Main Attraction | Bring students, teachers, and parents together for an evening of hands on science exploration. The MESS Hall brings all of the equipment for twelve stations in your school gym or cafeteria.
Science Station Add-On | Want to add some hands on science activities to your community event? You can request our mini menu with 5 hands on science exploration stations. This is perfect for book fair nights, and with the space theme of the stations, it goes great with astronomy nights.
Kindergarten – grade 2
Tinker Tots | Young learners are natural scientists. Our Tinker Tots program includes story time and hands-on. exploration in small groups (Program time is ~30 – 45 minutes/class). Fee: $125 per classroom ($75 for each additional program once we’re on site).

Prek (3 and 4 years old)
Math in Everyday | Educational series of four, 30 minute lessons that seeks to show students & teachers how to find math concepts within story books. After reading a story, students are broken into small groups to do hands on activities exploring science and math questions raised. All activities incorporate math vocabulary and are aligned to Florida educational standards.
The Pensacola MESS Hall expands its reach into the community through our outreach booths. We offer a limited number of free or discounted booths for community events. Please fill out our webform to request a booth for your event. Preplanning is rewarded! We book booths 3-12 months in advance.
