  • Printing in 3D January 9, 2015
    Printing in 3D In COSI's Teen Tech Studio, teens often ask about the cost of 3D printers.  And the answer is that it depends on a lot of factors…how big of a print area do you want?  Print quality?  Type of filament?  DIY kit? Etc.   In COSI's Teen Tech Studio, teens often ask about the cost of 3D printers.  And the answer is that it depends on a lot of factors…how big of a print area do you want?  Print quality?  Type of filament?  DIY kit? Etc.So to help answer these question, we've found a comprehensive list from 3dforged.com.  As you will see, there are lots of printers on the market, at a wide range of prices.  But some are pretty affordable, depending on what you're looking for…And as always, you can check out COSI's 3D printers at the Teen Tech Studio (Wed 3-7pm, Sat 10am-5pm). http://3dforged.com/best-3d-printers/ AuthorDave Buker Continue Reading
  • A Floating City Above Venus? December 30, 2014
    A Floating City Above Venus? Imagine an airship floating 30 miles above the surface of Venus – it's like something out of a Jules Verne novel.

  • Touchdown! November 12, 2014
    Touchdown! Congratulations to the European Space Agency on their Rosetta Mission and their lander, Philae, reaching the surface! For the first time in human history, a spacecraft has landed on a comet. This is an incredible feat – Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is moving more than forty times faster than a speeding bullet, is spinning, has a rough and rocky surface, and is ejecting gases. The European Space Agency launched Rosetta in 2004, so today is the culmination of 10 years of traveling through space for this one moment.   Here's an image taken from Philae as it approached the landing site earlier today.   http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2014/11/ROLIS_descent_image Congratulations to the European Space Agency on their Rosetta Mission and their lander, Philae, reaching the surface!

  • Oozing Pumpkin Experiment October 23, 2014
    Oozing Pumpkin Experiment Ahhh fall.  Changing leaves, apple picking, carving pumpkins, and the chance for some fall-related science!  As you can tell from my profile photo, I’m a Halloween girl – so any excuse I have to bring Halloween fun to an experiment, I’m in. Ahhh fall.  Changing leaves, apple picking, carving pumpkins, and the chance for some fall-related science!  As you can tell from my profile photo, I’m a Halloween girl – so any excuse I have to bring Halloween fun to an experiment, I’m in.  Today I’m making an Oozing Pumpkin and you can try it at home!  In fact, you can make them this Saturday at the Spooktacular Celebration which is our version of a kid’s Halloween party – complete with tasty treats and science tricks! Let’s gather our ingredients.  You’ll need: 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide2 teaspoons of dry active yeast4 tablespoons of warm water2 tablespoons of liquid dish soap (approximately)Food coloring (optional)1 glass jar – if you want, you can decorate it with your favorite Halloween or fall decoration before you begin your experiment.Aluminum tray – more on that laterSafety goggles Before you get started on this, a couple of things to note.  Don’t forget those safety goggles – I know you’ll be careful but accidents happen.  Also, this could get a little messy so you may want to wear an apron or have the kids wear paint shirts to protect their clothing.  First things first, of course I had to decorate my jar!  I went to a local craft store and found this sort of spray paint/tint hybrid which worked great on my regular old mason jar.  Special bonus: I got to use the paint booth in our exhibits shop.  The other great thing about that paint (it’s called Tint It), the jar dried fast – although I did give it overnight to dry just to be 100% sure.  Next I used a Sharpie to draw the jack-o-lantern face because I was afraid the face would wash off during the experiment.  After all paint was dry, I put the jar in an aluminum tray to cut down on the mess.  (Turns out that was the right thing to do because I overdid it on the soap and the experiment overflowed a lot more than expected.) I started with one cup of hydrogen peroxide into the glass jar.  Then, I added a little bit of green food coloring.  You don’t have to do this if you want – I did not get a great green sheen in the “ooze” so it’s up to you.  Maybe you just need to add more. Next, I squirted roughly two tablespoons of liquid dish soap in.  I didn’t measure, just guessed.  Don’t be afraid of not getting it right – this is where that aluminum tray comes in handy.  Next, in a small container, I combined the two teaspoons of the active dry yeast with four tablespoons of warm water.  Get ready for the magic (err….I mean science) to happen!  Pour that yeast/water mix into the jar and wait for the reaction! The reason this happens is hydrogen peroxide is like water, but with an extra oxygen atom (H2O2 instead of H2O).  The bubbling you see when you pour hydrogen peroxide on a cut isn’t caused by the presence of germs – instead, it is caused by a chemical that both we and the yeast have in common, called a catalase.  When you mix the hydrogen peroxide with the yeast, the catalase in the yeast gets to work, breaking the hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen gas, combining with the soap and creating our reaction.  Hope you have a great time doing this experiment at home with the kids or yourself – either way it’s super fun!  I also hope to see you this Saturday as we celebrate Halloween with the Costume Fun & Run and the Spooktacular Celebration.  Can’t wait to see everyone’s costumes!

  • The Lost Bird Project comes to COSI November 1st October 21, 2014
    The Lost Bird Project comes to COSI November 1st Imagine heading out on a beautiful fall day to enjoy the splendors the season has to offer. Perhaps this journey takes the form of watching the leaves change color, heading to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard to gather from the abundant crops, or perhaps heading to your local coffee house to indulge in the latest pumpkin latte craze. Whatever your favorite seasonal pastime, 100 years ago you may have found that your day may also have included the skies darkening at high noon for hours on end. Strange as that may seem to us now, the massive colonies of passenger pigeons that would be migrating across the skies of the continental U.S. would make this natural phenomenon a common occurrence during the changing of the seasons.

Strange as that may seem to us now, the massive colonies of passenger pigeons that would be migrating across the skies of the continental U.S. would make this natural phenomenon a common occurrence during the changing of the seasons. It’s hard to imagine that an animal so populous would be eliminated in only a century. This year marks the centennial anniversary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon. Passenger Pigeons The extinction of this species falls at the hands of man. We must learn from our past in order to make a difference in the future. Martha, the last known passenger pigeon who died on September 1, 1914 in her cage at the Cincinnati zoo stands as a symbol of nature’s fragility and what has been lost. Martha, the last of her kind, died on September 1, 1914 in her cage at the Cincinnati Zoo. Making a meaningful connection with an event that is so far removed from our current reality sometimes requires a bit of effort and creativity. The Lost Bird Project has taken on this task in the form of connecting more deeply with the earth through art. Their task: travelling around the country to some of the top museums and institutions in the country providing the materials and know how to create origami pigeons to recreate the once abundant flocks! The Lost Bird Project will be at COSI November 1st, free with general admission. Come and fold your own flock, making a connection to our past so we may learn how to be better stewards in the future.
