SMUD's MOSAC Field Trips program is designed to enhance museum accessibility for all community members, with a special focus on the region's most vulnerable youth. Through this initiative, students will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on STEM learning experiences, while exploring a dynamic science center and community gathering space.

The MOSAC Field Trips program is part of SMUD’s longstanding commitment to helping local educators connect students with STEM concepts and career pathways, especially as SMUD aims to decarbonize the region’s power supply by 2030. This is the pilot program’s second event of the year. In April, about two dozen students from Del Paso Heights visited the museum.
