Keeping Your Cool in the Kitchen

It’s hard to think about keeping cool this time of year, but a recent article on reducing food waste caught my attention. The Natural Resource Defense Council’s message also included a guide to where food should be stored inside a fridge.  You can find a link at the end of this post. I’d like to add a few tips on keeping a fridge running efficiently. A refrigerator that runs well also helps protect food.

Field Trip Workshop "At The Park"

On February 13th, Ms. Willis’ preschool classroom from Arlington Park Elementary visited COSI and participated in the Field Trip Workshop, At the Park. During this program, children were able to explore activities that relate to what they may see, notice, or discover when they are outside at the park, at school, or in their neighborhood. Children were able to explore weather including wind and rainfall, construction of playspaces, and colors of nature.  Take a look at children’s explorations below!

Here, children are exploring water: rainfall, splashing, and puddles. What happens when water falls to the ground? Can you make splashes in the water? What does that sound like?
