Scenes from COSI’s K-6 science outreach program, “It’s Simply Chemistry

Staff Reports

ELIDA – Students get a lesson in slimy science when COSI (Center of Science and Industry) brings its traveling science program It’s Simply Chemistry to Elida Elementary School on January 7 & 8, 2016.

The innovative, interactive program will stimulate the imaginations of the next generation of scientists and chemists by allowing students to explore chemistry through simple experiments designed to introduce new science principles.

It’s Simply Chemistry is just one of six outreach traveling programs from COSI. This fun and educational assembly is followed by hands-on activity sessions during which the students will make their very own COSI Super Slime, create endothermic and exothermic reactions, and learn to identify unknown substances using chemistry.

The COSI On Wheels program aligns with Ohio Academic Content Standards, compliments the National Science Education Standards, and allows your students to learn about the fundamentals of chemistry through scientific experimentation.

COSI is a hands-on science center located in Columbus, Ohio.

Each year more than 300,000 students take part in COSI On Wheels programs, and in the past 30 years, COSI On Wheels has brought hands-on science into the lives of over 7.5 million students across the Midwest.

Allen County Educational Service Center and the SESA (Science Enhancement for Science Advancement) program sponsor this event. The PTO also helps with costs and volunteers.
