Students explore outer space without ever leaving school grounds when COSI, Columbus' science center brings its traveling science program Launch Into Space to League Elementary on Friday.
The innovative, interactive program helps stimulate the imaginations of the next generation of astronauts and aerospace engineers. The program is just one of six traveling demonstrations from COSI.
The day begins with a 45-minute interactive assembly introducing the students to the basics of exploration into the final frontier. Students will take a roundtrip voyage to space, explore rocket launches, life in space, and the trip back to Earth. This fun, educational assembly is followed by hands-on activities during which the students will discover the chemical make up of stars, explore space food and launch cork rockets.
COSI is a hands-on science center located in Columbus. Each year more than 350,000 students take part in one of the COSI on Wheels programs.
