SMUD partners with state, nonprofits to increase access to region’s largest science museum
Children from Oak Park to explore SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity
On Friday, students from the Oak Park community will join SMUD, the California Department of Water Resources and other community volunteers for a free day at the SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity.
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.

When: Friday, June 30, 2023, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Participating students, community volunteers and partners will meet at the Salvation Army for breakfast Friday morning before being bussed to the museum, where students will enjoy exhibits, special hands-on lessons and a planetarium presentation.
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.
