Join COSI team in Gadgets Cafe this weekend for some new "design-based learning" activities. We'll be playing with a plethora of common items (paper towel tubes, string, marbles, plastic cups, rubber bands, etc) to make Rube-Goldberg-style contraptions!!!
On Friday, July 26th, COSI's high school YOU.edit program culminated in a showing of student-made films in Galaxy Theater.
The program, supported by MacNeil/Lehrer and designed/operated in conjunction with WOSU's Shawn Likley, introduced teens to the various aspects of video production. Shawn and I led workshops on camera settings, lighting techniques, storyboarding, and editing.
