Things to Know

Teachers, we want to help you. We know you are navigating changed classroom set ups, restrictions of classroom visits, and a Fall with no field trips. The Pensacola MESS Hall has virtual field trips to enrich the classroom experience for Fall. If allowed by the district or your school administration, we can also send our instructors into your classroom for a hands-on experience. With optimism as our guide, we are taking reservations for Spring 2021.

We have spent the Spring and Summer of 2021 delivering these virtual and in-person experiences. Now featuring Water Works, suitable for grades 3-5.

  • Water Works-Students will take an exploration of the properties of water while doing hands-on activities to investigate surface tension, buoyancy, refraction, hydrophobic materials, and freezing point.

For kindergarten through 2nd grade, we offer Moonbear’s Shadow, an exploration of light and shadows with a literature connection.

We’ve also made registration easy for you.  Pick a date that works for your class. We’ll adapt our program to fit the guidelines of the time.
