World Water Day at Whole Foods

A partnership between a science museum and a grocery store might not seem a likely pairing, but Whole Foods Market and COSI made for a great combination last Thursday. Whole Foods Market's Dublin location, a groundswell supporter of COSI's new WATER exhibition, welcomed COSI Team Members with our Science Spot traveling science kiosks for a special in-store appearance, and amazingly, donated 5% of the day's sales proceeds to COSI.

Race & Science - How Bad Science Can Persist

How Bad Science Can Persist

The opening of our exhibition this Saturday, RACE: Are We So Different? has reminded me of my own special up-close opportunity associated with the science underlying our new exhibition. I was able in the last 10 years to personally engage with the leading scientists behind the recent definitive change in the science behind the concept of race.
