Early Childhood Family Workshops

For Families With Children Ages 18mos-6yrs.

COSI’s family workshop experience is designed for families with children ages (18 months to 6 years).  These workshops specifically allow children of mixed ages to engage together in hands-on activities exploring the world around them.  We’ll be scientists together, as we dig deeper with the COSI floor team in our “Meet the Scientist” experience. Early Childhood Family Workshops run from 3pm to 4:30pm.

Infant Workshops

For children ages 6-17 months.

COSI’s Infant Workshops are designed for infants and their favorite adult to explore their environment through hands-on sensory activities that help develop social, cognitive, and motor skills and allow for creative expression. Workshops are designed to be messy, so dress for mess and explore with us! Thursday infant workshops run from 10am to 11am; Sunday infant workshops run from 3pm to 4pm.

Toddler Workshops

For children ages 18-36 months.

Each month’s topic has two individual workshop experiences designed for you and your toddler to investigate through hands-on activities, try it at home info, and lots of time creating and exploring together.

Preschool Workshops

For children ages 3-5 years.

COSI’s preschool workshops are specially designed for children ages 3-5 years and their favorite adult to explore the world around them. We’ll be scientists together as we dig deeper with the COSI floor team in our “Meet the Scientist” experience. Preschool workshops run from 10am to 11:30am.

Homeschool Workshops

Parents, learn with your children using materials that you might not have at home (LEGO® Mindstorm Robots, COSI’s Adventure and Labs In Life exhibits and more) to better understand real and relevant science concepts. Participants socialize with other young scientists while exploring science careers, too!
