COSI on Wheels to bring astronomy exhibit to OU-C

COSI on Wheels will present “Astounding Astronomy” on June 22 in the Shoemaker Center at Ohio University-Chillicothe as part of the Kids in College program. Students in kindergarten through third grade can experience the program from 9:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and students in grades four through six can view the presentation from 1 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.

The program includes a presentation as well as hands-on activities at eight stations. The program allows students to study concepts such as how scientists navigate to distant planets using remotely-operated vehicles or use spectroscopy to examine how gases burn in different arrangements of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Registration deadline is June 3, and individuals can register children in the OU-C Technology and Business Development Center (room 139) on Pohlman Road.
