Summer is the right time to learn about frogs!

On Tuesday, June 24th, COSI staff visited the Primrose School at Polaris in Westerville to present a frog workshop for toddlers. The children experienced the natural habitat of frogs and pretended to be frogs themselves in COSI’s make-believe lily pond.

Amy Koogler's students love science.

The Highland Elementary School teacher wasn't about to let financial challenges stop her from bringing her 300 students to COSI on a field trip this spring. Amy used a website called donorschoose.org to raise more than $1,000 from eleven donors, including Disney, to make her school's field trip possible.

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.
