Toddler Frog Outreach

On Tuesday, April 15th COSI visited the YMCA at St. Ann’s Hospital where a group of toddlers learned all about frogs. During the session toddlers got to observe real frogs up close using magnifying glasses.  They noticed the frog’s color and texture of their skin and witnessed frogs hopping from one spot to another to get where they needed to go!

Get Out and Run!

Spring is here and with it comes (mostly) nice weather and more and more people will begin a running program as the days get warmer. After a long winter it feels nice to be outside and a great way to enjoy the outdoors is by running.  Running is a fun activity that also happens to be free. While running around your neighborhood, you are more likely to see your neighbors and might even make a few new friends. If you have any canine companions, they might even like to go for a run with you. In keeping with the season, here are a few more of the reasons to get out and run, as well as some advice for beginning a running regimen.

Jamming out on the Moppy

COSI's T&I Specialist, Ryan Westhoven, recently built our first "moppy player".  What's a moppy player?  It's a series of 3 1/2 floppy computer drives (8, in this case) programmed and controlled through the use of an Arduino controller.
