Each COSI Connects Space Kit is filled with engaging, hands-on STEM activities. COSI’s education experts have created these activities to encourage inquiry-driven learning and reinforce Ohio's Learning standards.

Become an Engineer - Build a Rocket - Did you know that there are many engineers working to build rockets that will travel into outer space? Become an engineer as you build a rocket. Is it capable of carrying a payload of supplies to the International Space Station?

Go to Space - Launch a Rocket - Did you know that a lot of astronauts used to be engineers? Today, become an astronaut and use your engineering expertise to make a new rocket to launch you into outer space!  

Build a Moon Base - Your rocket has blasted into space and landed safely on the moon. Now it is time to use some creativity and what you know about the engineering design process to build your own moon base.

Impact Craters - Astronauts go into outer space to collect scientific data, and today you will do just that! Have you ever noticed craters on photos of the moon? In this activity, you and your team of astronauts will collect scientific data on impact craters.

Back to Earth - Build a Parachute - Now that you have collected data on the moon, it is time for you and your team to get back into your space capsule and return to Earth. One very important safety feature for astronauts returning to Earth is a parachute. Use your engineering skills one last time to design the perfect parachute!
