3, 2, 1...Build It!

3,2,1…Build It! allows students to build with a COSI educator as they explore shapes and numbers to construct a variety of structures. Preschool Outreach is a 45 minute session that consists of a group demonstration and activity centers, with each session accommodating 20 or fewer students. The session times are scheduled by the person at your school who coordinates the Preschool Outreach events.

During the group demonstration the following science concepts and more will be explored:

  • Shapes and numbers
  • Relative positions of objects
  • Using smaller shapes to build something larger

The activity centers will be presented following the group demonstration. During this time the students will be able to explore the activity centers. At the activity centers the students will have the opportunity to explore the various concepts presented during the group demonstration, as well as explore how math is used in the world around them.


$120 for first session; $75 for each additional session (of same topic, held same day).
