Cars that Drive Themselves

People love their cars. But driving can be risky. When it comes to moving at 100 kilometers per hour, the laws of physics are not always on our side. Stopping a car, slowing it down, or changing its direction at high speed can be difficult and dangerous. But there is a solution to the problem of driving: remove the drivers.

River Mile 240 to 220 (approximately)

The first leg of my Scioto River journey took place on April 13, a sunny, cool day that was perfect weather for exploring. My friend Joan and I headed up to Kenton, the county seat of Hardin County. I was worried about being able to find the source of the river. It is easy to trace the course of the river upstream from Columbus to Kenton using a DeLorme Altas or Google maps. But west of Kenton the stream is so narrow that it is hard to follow on a map. Topographic maps in 7.5 minute scale show more detail, however, and we found the spot. It turns out a handy sign on Roundhead Township Road 15 marks the spot, as well, so I needn’t have worried.

Scioto River Journey

My intention is to travel the river in sections, documenting and interpreting what I see and experience through a blog hosted by COSI’s website, between April and August 2012.

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. That came to an amazing total of $4,937.90 that will be contributed to our mission.

Why is there a Leap Day?

It's been a mild February. All the same, most of us are ready for March to blow in with its promise of more daylight, budding flowers, and spring training games on the radio. So why do we have to wait an extra day this year for the festivities to begin?
