What's a Sundog?

Leaving work yesterday, a co-worker and I discovered something strange happening in the sky. I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not so amazing with the earth sciences but luckily we were walking out with a few people who are and were told that we were looking at a "sundog." Curious by nature, I had to figure out what that meant exactly.

Upcoming events for inspiring innovators and entrepreneurs

Started Friday morning at OSU's Wake Up Start Up event and got to hear a pitch from Dr. Melissa Bailey for her IXM mobile eye exam concept. Dr. Bailey works with COSI as part of our Labs in Life. This gave her access to lots of COSI guests as subjects to gather her normative data. We're glad to be a part of this innovative entrepreneurial idea.

COSI Management Geeking Out

I am a proclaimed Geek. No apologies.

With one of my degrees in Physics I watch Big Bang Theory faithfully and say "those are my peeps!"

Can't say the same for some of the talented members who make up the diversity of our Vice Presidents helping support COSI's team. They love and are dedicated to COSI, but I don't think any of them ever got excited and built their own stereo or mess around at home with Robot kits.

Simple Machines!

Last week, preschool-age children experimented with simple machines and construction. They learned about the different types of simple machines, such as pulleys, levers, and ramps.

2001 on the Extreme Screen: A Visual (and Sound) Odyssey

I love Stanley Kubrick's 1968 masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I've seen this epic space film dozens of times since childhood, probably once or twice in a movie theater, but almost always at home on TV.

Yet, in a way, I'd never seen 2001 before last month.

That's because I finally saw it on COSI's Extreme Screen.
