An Insider's Perspective on Pandas: The Journey Home

I was bad in the theater today.

I know you should not talk in the theater—I certainly get annoyed when others do.  But today was special.

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.

It all started with a Big Bang.

Find out how and find out how we know that!

The Universe used to be filled with hot, dense matter, smoothly distributed across a rapidly expanding space.  How did that become the complex Universe of clustered stars and galaxies that we see today?  That complexity includes humans who can figure out the history and future of the Universe by careful observations that bridge its vast distances and enormous age!

Exploring the Science of Cold

Recently at COSI, toddlers were busy engaging scientific inquiry through explorations of all things COLD!  In our Friday morning and Saturday morning Cold Science workshops, toddlers and their caregivers investigated really cool, wet, and dry experiments and connected with literacy through Keith Baker’s story, No Two Alike.
