Early Childhood Family Workshops

For Families With Children Ages 18mos-6yrs.

COSI’s family workshop experience is designed for families with children ages 18mos - 6yrs). These workshops specifically allow children of mixed ages to engage together in hands-on activities exploring the world around them. We'll be scientists together, as we dig deeper with the COSI floor team in our "Meet the Scientist" experience.

Infant Workshops

For children ages 6-17 months.

COSI’s Infant Workshops are designed for infants and their favorite adult to explore their environment through hands-on sensory activities that help develop social, cognitive, and motor skills and allow for creative expression. COSI’s Infant Workshops meet once for one hour inside little kidspaceTM on COSI’s Level 2. Workshops are designed to be messy, so dress for the mess and explore with us!

Toddler Workshops

For children ages 18-36 months.

Each month’s topic has two individual workshop experiences designed for you and your toddler to investigate through hands-on activities, try it at home info, and lots of time creating and exploring together. Choose from our early morning (9:15 am – 10:15 am) or mid-morning (10:45 am – 11:45 am) workshop options.

Preschool Workshops

For children ages 3-5 years.

COSI’s preschool workshops are specially designed for children ages 3-5 years and their favorite adult to explore the world around them. We’ll be scientists together, as we dig deeper with the COSI floor team in our “Meet the Scientist” experience.

Homeschool Workshops

Parents, learn with your children using materials that you might not have at home (LEGO® Mindstorm Robots, COSI’s Adventure and Labs In Life exhibits and more) to better understand real and relevant science concepts. Participants socialize with other young scientists while exploring science careers, too!
