Museum-On-The-Go Kits:

The Children’s Museum MOGO kit program can be used in conjunction with your homeschool curriculum or for enrichment. Each kit contains a teacher’s guide and enough materials for several activities for up to 25 students, all stored in a sturdy container. MOGO kits contain all materials needed for hands-on activities.

Kits are available for 1-4 week loans. Homeschool parents will need to place a $25 deposit to check out kits. Once all materials are checked in upon return, the deposit is refunded. If your homeschool group or school affiliate is signed up with the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit (CSIU) mail service, kits can be mailed to a CSIU location and will be returned by you in a similar fashion.

If you are interested in borrowing a kit, please contact us and see our 2017 Kit Brochure.
