Science Spots at the Gift For Life event at Mount Hermon Baptist Church. In spite of being held up by some curious bees, a great group of young people spent a couple of hours enjoying a nice balance of science and the lovely weather.

COSI’s “Science Spot” traveling science exhibition recently visited the YWCA in New Albany, Ohio. These young campers became very creative with our “Construction Plans” Science Spot!

COSI On Wheels at the National Night Out Festival

COSI was present during the 7th Annual National Night Out Festival at South Ogden Avenue in Columbus, Ohio.

National Night Out is a nationwide event that invites residents to stand with community leaders and local police to give crime a “going away party.” There are over 10,000 communities that participate in this event.

For the community on South Ogden Avenue, it was a way to bring the community closer together. And what’s a better way than to have COSI On Wheels’ Science Spot bring some enjoyable hands-on science? COSI On Wheels was able to teach science, bring COSI closer to their community, and let all of the South Ogden community have fun at the same time.

I know for me, events like these make COSI On Wheels a little more special.

The Force is Strong With This One

Oh, Tech and Science fest. You sneaky sneak you. I arrive and expect the worst, to sit around for eight hours with Jonathan handing out silly bands in a community college. You went above and beyond with your National Weather Service nerds and your stamp enthusiasts. I thought it couldn’t get any better than people in top hats and crazy lab coats. Then you drop this in my lap.

Thank you. Thank you so much.

How do you wash an entire truckload of COSI Science Spots at once? COSI’s Science Spots are traveling hands-on science exhibits from COSI in Columbus, Ohio. Each Science Spot travels in a large colorful bin. After a long summer on the road, they tend to get a bit dirty, which is where a car wash (and a nice August day) comes in handy!
