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.

Building a City in BigKidLab

In COSI’s Big KidLab, children have been working hard to design and build a city. Using recyclable materials such as milk jugs, egg cartons, cardboard, yogurt containers, and much more, children have become inspired to create a meaningful addition for the city.

COSI team members and adults have encouraged children to think about what is in a city. What structures are in a city? What does a city need? What did you see outside on your way to COSI? What do you wish a city could have?

3, 2, 1... Build it Fun!

On November 11th, at Oakmont Elementary, Ms. Pollyann Giffin’s preschool classroom took part in COSI’s 3,2,1…Build It program. This program was provided to the elementary school on behalf of PNC through PNC’s Grow Up Great Grant.

Children were very ecstatic to act as construction workers and take on building and measuring challenges.

All Aboard! No Details Spared in Model Railroad Weekend Displays!

COSI has Model Railroad Weekend through Sunday! While it was setting up, I got a chance to peek in at the progress and find out more about the special event. We have three very interesting railroad clubs with us for the weekend, The Columbus Garden Railway Society, The Central Ohio O-Scale Engineers and the Central Ohio S Gaugers. Along with those clubs, Operation Lifesaver is here and the Columbus Historical Society (which is housed here in COSI) put together a great display talking about the history of the railroad here in Columbus.
