The Domino Effect

September 1, 2010

Post by Jordan Rader

As the summer season winds down, the COSI On Wheels Team is putting some finishing touches on new activities that will be hitting the road this fall.  COSI’s Investigating Energy program has a new hands-on activity called “The Domino Effect.” 


In the activity students will be challenged to transfer energy from one point to another.   The students will have to figure out that by setting up blocks in a domino rally fashion they can accomplish their goal. 

Before we send out a new activity we test it in the building to make sure everything works as planned. After testing the activity, we decided to have a little fun.  A “Script COSI Domino Rally” was the result.  Here is a video:

Be sure to look for this activity when it comes to your school this year.  I’m sure we’ll see a lot of interesting designs from our students.
