The Universe in a Glass of Ice Water

Ah, summertime! Warm weather, sunny days, and glasses of ice water on the table – er, I mean, the coaster, Mom. Really! Those crystalline cubes clinking against the glass, cooling all they touch and slowly, slowly disappearing into the background.

The Official Bug of the COSI Team Garden

Have you ever looked out the second floor windows near Galleries 2 & 3 and wondered what was going on with all the plants on the rooftop below? If so, you were looking at COSI's Team Garden. For the past three years COSI Team Members have been able to sign up for a plot and create their very own rooftop container garden. Now that the weather has warmed up, the Team Garden is starting to take shape. It is awesome to be able to take a break from a busy day and get my hands dirty tending my vegetable plants.

This week an exciting event occurred in the Team Garden. A praying mantis egg case hatched, releasing scores of tiny mantids to patrol the plants in search for food.
