10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

COSI’s Science Spot traveling science exhibition comes to Sidney.  Enjoy an assortment of Science spots listed below.  

  Air Cannon

Participants press against a rubber membrane that covers a large drum. As the pressure builds within the drum, air shoots out the hole in the bottom and blasts passers by with a puff of air.

Ball Launcher

Participants use air pressure from a heavy weight to launch a foam ball high into the air.

Be A Builder

Participants use two dimensional blueprints and wooden blocks to build a three dimensional structure. Blueprints come in a variety of levels of difficulty ranging from Easy to Very Difficult.


Participants see how iron fillings suspended in a liquid form an interesting creation called ferrofluid, which, when placed near a strong magnet, create interesting designs/forms.

Magnetic Levitation

Participants can see how strong magnetic poles can repel each other with these floating discs. As they press down on the disc, they can feel the magnets forcing the disc skyward. They also see how magnetic levitation can be used for such new technology as maglev trains.


Participants wrap a rope around various pulleys to determine how additional pulleys reduce the amount of work needed to move an object.

Puzzling Plans

Participants are challenged to correctly arrange colored blocks in the correct order using two dimensional blueprints. Blueprints come in a variety of levels of difficulty ranging from Easy to Very Difficult.


Participants construct two pyramids using only the few wooden blocks provided.

Roller Coasters

Participants use a magnetic wall and Frigits to build a track for a marble to roll down and see the force of gravity in action.


Participants are challenged to find the fewest number of moves to transfer discs from one rod to another.

Fun active  Activities are suitable for adults and children.
