An Egg-citing Member Weekend at COSI

At COSI, we love to see families having fun while learning together. Last weekend we provided the opportunity to do just that at our 2nd annual Member Eggstravagant Scavenger Hunt! This event was designed to combine COSI's unique brand of learning and fun with a traditional holiday festivity.

Unlike the typical egg hunt, the Eggstravagant Scavenger Hunt gives COSI member families the chance to earn eggs and prizes by answering exhibit-based riddles and completing family challenges.

A Special Day!

Exactly 49 years ago today, COSI opened its doors on Easter Sunday in the old Memorial Hall on 280 E. Broad St.

Sandy Hallock (read more about him at http://www.cosi.org/about-cosi/history/) had developed a dream for a new Columbus institution based on his lifelong interest in science and technology. His enthusiasm and vision gained the critical support of Hershel Stephan, Walter English, Preston Wolfe and the Franklin Historical Society Board (including Tad Jeffrey as a member). On opening day they welcomed over 5,000 people to see this new entity, COSI, helping launch a new era of what has become known as the worldwide science center movement -- with COSI one of its recognized founders and leaders.

March Ratness at COSI

Every spring, March Madness sweeps the nation, turning even the most casual basketball fan into a rabid, number-crunching, bracket-obsessed enthusiast. But at COSI, we're in on the hoops hype every day, year-round, with fierce showdowns of our own.

We're talking rat basketball.

Printing in 3D

As COSI's Technology & Innovation strategic area of focus lead, my favorite part of my job is meeting creative and innovative people. Last week COSI hosted The Columbus Idea Foundry's Ethan Dicks, and his group, The Central Ohio RepRap and Makerbot Operators User Group (CORMUG). They teach and learn about 3D printing, and if you're interested in tinkering, rapid prototyping or micro-manufacturing, this is the group to know.

Scioto River Journey

My intention is to travel the river in sections, documenting and interpreting what I see and experience through a blog hosted by COSI’s website, between April and August 2012.
