Exploring Plants at COSI

Be sure to visit Big Science Park during your next trip to COSI. There you will see our new container garden featuring a variety of herbs and produce. This garden, which was made possible thanks to support from The Scotts Miracle-Gro Community Garden Academy Fund of The Columbus Foundation, was created in partnership with the George Washington Carver Food Research Institute.  Some of the produce harvested from the garden will be used to feed COSI’s animal collection. Any additional produce will be donated to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. We hope you will enjoy watching our garden grow this summer and fall.

Summer is the right time to learn about frogs!

On Tuesday, June 24th, COSI staff visited the Primrose School at Polaris in Westerville to present a frog workshop for toddlers. The children experienced the natural habitat of frogs and pretended to be frogs themselves in COSI’s make-believe lily pond.
