COSI Comes to Goshen Monday and Tuesday 


COSI, the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, Ohio is bringing COSI On Wheels to Goshen.  COSI on Wheels introduces dynamic science topics to schools with a high-energy assembly followed by exciting, interactive, hands-on activities. COSI on Wheels programs enhance inquiry skills, encourage curiosity, and spark interest in science. It's Simply Chemistry is the program we are hosting next Monday and Tuesday. Students will explore the scientific method, acids and bases, and chemical and physical changes as they complete challenges to become Certified COSI Chemists. Get messy with non-Newtonian substances, endothermic and exothermic reactions, and other chemistry hands-on activities!

None of this is possible without the commitment and time of our parent volunteers.  You do not have to be a scientist to help out with this wonderful program and you will be trained in the morning before you volunteer, so there's no reason you can't join in the fun! Please go to: COSI Volunteer Link to volunteer to be a part of this tremendous learning experience.
