Parkway Elementary School: Counting Down to COSI On Wheels

October 12, 2010

From day-to-day I can sometimes forget the excitement that COSI On Wheels can bring to a school. For me, the Launch Into Space program is an everyday occurrence. But, to a school, it is a once a year exciting day of science exploration. At Parkway Elementary School in Rockford, Ohio, excitement for my visit started even before I arrived. On the school’s webpage a countdown was created in anticipation of my arrival. Each day the school posted a description of one of the activities and a “space” vocabulary word. This proved not only to fire up the kids but to also prepare the volunteers. Through the use of their webpage, adults understood what being a volunteer involved and became excited at the prospect of helping. Launch Into Space ran without a hitch that day due, in great part, to the excitement and preparation of the students, staff and volunteers.
