Recapping our Four Week Preschool Workshop Series: Science of Performing Arts

This fall our preschool workshop guests participated in a four week series titled the Science of Performing Arts. Using music, dance, and dramatic expression the child and adult participant combo investigated the states of matter and related that exploration to the performing arts. We explored big ideas such as:
  • I can learn about science through kinesthetic experiences using music, dance and drama. Science learning can be an active experience!
  • I can use the performing arts to make connections to learning about the phases of matter i.e. solids, liquids, and gases.
  • With modeling and support I can explore the properties of objects and materials.
  • I can use imagination and creativity to interact with objects and materials. I can engage in inventive social play.

An Honor to be Named CEO of the Year

Wow! How Did That Happen?

Last night I was on stage with well-known and respected community leaders like George Barrett, Chairman & CEO of Cardinal Health and Dr. Steve Allen, CEO of Nationwide Children's Hospital receiving my award as a fellow Columbus CEO of the Year. I really wondered how I ranked with the likes of those two and the others which made up our cohort of six leaders being honored by Columbus CEO magazine through a survey conducted by Capital University that went to 4,000 CEOs around our region.

COSI Management Geeking Out

I am a proclaimed Geek. No apologies.

With one of my degrees in Physics I watch Big Bang Theory faithfully and say "those are my peeps!"

Can't say the same for some of the talented members who make up the diversity of our Vice Presidents helping support COSI's team. They love and are dedicated to COSI, but I don't think any of them ever got excited and built their own stereo or mess around at home with Robot kits.
