COSI on Wheels Comes to Whitaker

Students at Whitaker Elementary School welcomed a COSI (Center of Science and Industry) on Wheels Outreach Educator in May. The educator presented the Exploring Ecology program to grades 2-5. Students learned about the science of prairies, forests, rivers, and wetlands  as well as animals that could live in the area. They experienced hands on activities that investigated animal adaptations, life cycles, and learned how parts of an ecosystem are connected.

This is a wonderful, hands on way for students to learn about science. Through a variety of stations manned by our wonderful parent volunteers, students get to experience many different concepts. Students were excited and loved the hands on activities as well as the group interactions. Parents had a terrific time interacting with the children.

Below is a link to photos from the event. Stay tuned for a video soon to come!
