BRADFORD — Lightning strikes at Bradford Schools when COSI (Center of Science and Industry) brings its traveling program, Current Conditions, on March 23. This innovative, interactive program will stimulate the imaginations of the next generation of meteorologists.
Current Conditions is just one of six traveling science demonstrations from COSI.
The day begins with a 45-minute interactive assembly introducing the students to air pressure, cloud formation, warm and cold fronts and extreme weather. This fun and educational assembly is followed by hands-on activities during which the students will test their forecasting skills, examine the process of hail formation and experiment with the tools of the meteorological trade.
This COSI on Wheels program aligns with Ohio Academic Content Standards, compliments the National Science Education Standards, and encourages students to learn about meteorology through scientific experimentation.
COSI is a hands-on science center located in Columbus Ohio. Each year more than 300,000 students take part in COSI On Wheels programs, and in the past 30 years, COSI On Wheels has brought hands-on science into the lives of more than 7.5 million students across the Midwest.
Current Conditions is made possible through the generous support of sponsor Target.
“Come see for yourself,” said a spokesperson. “You are invited to see the COSI On Wheels Current Conditions program in action from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the high school gym, 750 Railroad Ave., Bradford.”
