Accessibility Update—COSI Introduces Sensory Friendly Movies!

Within the last 2 years COSI has been focused on identifying ways to make our building more inviting and welcoming to children, teens, and even adults with disabilities and special needs. Last year we introduced our Autism Activities Events and the response from the community has been GREAT! It has been an awesome experience working with those within the Columbus community to develop these special after hour events. Their feedback and willingness to assist COSI in making our Autism Activities Events the best they can be has been quite a rewarding experience.

COSI Recipes: Greek Salad in a Jar

Guests that have seen the COSI team garden, which is viewable from the Level 2 hallway on the way to the International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, know that the COSI team likes to eat our vegetables. As we move into the time of year when vegetables become more plentiful in the stores, farmers markets, and our own gardens, the question arises “what to do with all this produce?”. There are many good reasons to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables and the USDA recommends filling half of your plate with them. Here at COSI, in addition to liking to eat our greens, we also like using items for new and interesting purposes. One way to use some of the screw-top jars you may have laying around the house and some of that surplus produce at the same time is to make jar salads.

COSI’s EMS and Safety Day Update

This past May COSI held another EMS & Safety Day event. This event is held annually during EMS and Safety Week with the purpose of providing the community with information from area partners on how we can stay safe throughout the year. This year we welcomed 12 community partners that provided demos and activities focused on understanding CPR, preparing your home for natural disasters, proper car seat safety, and much much more! COSI guests even had an opportunity to play with real patient simulators that doctor and nurses use during their training.

Keep the Learning Going All Summer Long!

School’s out for summer but we’re still engaging in learning here in our Preschool Workshops at COSI.  Participating in inquiry learning, preschoolers and their accompanying adult at our, Simple Machines: Gears, Levers, & Pulleys workshop, investigated how simple machines make work easier. Through hands-on activities designed to provide exposure and further cultivate curiosity through exploration, children practiced skills for school readiness through play.
