For Families

Homeschool Workshops for Elementary & Middle Grades

Parents, learn with your elementary and middle school students using materials that you might not have at home (LEGO® robotics systems, soldering supplies, and more) to better understand science concepts. Participants socialize while exploring science careers, too! To register, please call 614.228.2674.

Please note that selected COSI program reservations are subject to a nominal processing fee. Proceeds from this fee help to support COSI, a not-for-profit organization. For selected programs, transaction fees may be waived for COSI Members as a benefit of membership.
