With news of a safe reopen on the horizon, it’s natural that people want to be planning for the future.
COSI, aka one of the country’s best science museums, has been closed for weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic with the majority of the workers temporarily laid off.
In an effort to bring in revenue and benefit the public, the science museum has announced an awesome new deal for those planning to purchase annual memberships. Through May 31, purchasing a one-year COSI membership will come with an additional year for free. Your membership will kick off as soon as COSI reopens and will remain valid for two years.
Even though you can’t go to COSI in person right now, you can take advantage of COSI Connects. Through the program, you’ll find new science content for the whole family daily, including videos, at-home activities, and more.
Last week, Director of Science Content Dr. Marci Howdyshell appeared on Good Day Columbus to chat about #COSIConnects and make a non-Newtonian fluid called Oobleck. You can learn how to do it, too, with today's activity! Find it at https://t.co/WgD3AfdQmX. https://t.co/FjIwgo4QE5
