From navigating a space rover to experimenting with air pressure, the learning for Loveland Early Childhood Center (LECC) first graders was hands-on Friday, Nov. 2. The COSI (Center of Science and Industry) traveling science program rolled into the district to teach young scientists lessons in astronomy.
“This is the type of program we embrace because it brings the lessons on science to life for our students,” said Kyle Bush, LECC principal.
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 more than 7.5 million students across the Midwest. Astounding Astronomy, one of six traveling demonstrations from COSI, was the focus for LECC students.
“Our students explored the size and distance between the planets, electromagnetic spectrum, the extreme cold of the outer planets and deep space,” said Bush. “We are so appreciative of our PTA for bringing this program to our school.”
