COSI brings a Sensory Sensation to Canal Winchester!

On July 29th, LKS Team Members brought the Science at Your Fingertips outreach to The Cottage Child Development Center in Canal Winchester. Sixteen 3 year-olds from two classes sampled the different sensations of sand, snow and flubber!

In this picture children have created a sculpture by inserting sticks into flubber which is made using white glue, warm water and borax. In addition to delighting in the squishy feeling of flubber, children practiced early writing skills through decorating the flubber with colored markers.
