Innovation Front Forward @ Center for Innovation

We are in the second of 3 days of major innovation events at COSI. Today COSI is hosting Innovate Columbus sandwiched in between our two TEDx events.

It is way cool to have the caliber of speakers in our building today. Richard Florida, Jeffrey Dyer, and Sir Ken Robinson all in one afternoon speaking to the principles of Innovation. And to some degree how Columbus can continue to innovate as a community and to build an innovative ecosystem in our region.

Awesome Youth@COSI

George Anderson, local photographer, is in the solo canoe he built himself with a case of photography equipment, and David Rutter, MORPC’s Water Quality Project Manager, and I are in the second canoe which we rented from Columbus Outdoor Pursuits.

Getting to this moment involved a great deal of planning and management of logistics. Here is how it went:

Incredible Commitment, Incredible Stories

Many companies and individual donors provide support for youth programs at science centers around the country. I have worked with many over my years at different museums and they all bring sincerity and hope at some level to their support.

But I have never had the experience of working with a company and individuals quite so dedicated, visionary, and personally engaged and committed as those around the Miracle-Gro Capital Scholars program. Today’s feature story in The Columbus Dispatch shares the special story of how the Hagedorn family and the Scotts Miracle-Gro company (where Jim Hagedorn is CEO) have made an incredible commitment to help youth make a fundamental change in their lives in partnership with COSI and others.
