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.

Design-based Learning

COSI's Technology & Innovation team is experimenting with various "design-based learning" activities in Gadgets Cafe.  What's design-based learning?  These activities provide learners with the creative license to construct whatever they'd like...with some mild guidance.

What really happens to the things we throw away & recycle?

Every day we place items in the trash can or recycle bin, often with little thought as to what the next step in that item’s ‘life’ will be. A group of COSI Team Members took two field trips to learn more about waste collection and recycling in Central Ohio.
