School may be out for the week, but there’s still plenty to learn at Mobius Science Center through their Spring Break Science courses.

On April 1, take in the planetarium shows, which are shown at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Students can enjoy a tour of the planets, black holes and more. Tickets are $2 for members and $3 for non-members.

On April 2, students can “Sail Away” with this course while learning about the engineering design process as they design and build a ship of their own. Then, they can see how far their ship can sail and how much cargo it can hold before sinking. This class is free with admission.

“Sprout Houses,” on April 3, will teach students what a seed needs to sprout and grow. They can then build a mini greenhouse to take home. This class is free with admission.

On April 4, Spring Break Science focuses on tree microscopy. Students can take a peak at a pine needle and pine wood under a microscope in this hands-on biology lab. This class is free with admission.

Closing the week, on April 5, Mobius will offer students the opportunity to dissect cow eyes to learn why animal eyes glow at night and how similar animal eyes are to human eyes.

Mobius educators will lead dissections at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. This class is $10 for members and $12 for non-members (per eyeball). Children under 6 must have adult supervision in their group to dissect an eyeball. Pre-register at www.mobiusspokane.org.
